A KNIFE-WIELDING schoolgirl who brutally stabbed two 14-year-old girls SEVEN times was sentenced to more than four years in custody.

Police officers rushed to the scene after a gang of teenagers got into a row on a field near Rivermead Leisure Complex in Reading.

One of the teenagers, a 15-year-old girl who cannot be named for legal reasons, then drew a blade.

What happened next was a shocking incident when a 13-year-old girl had a knife plunged into her stomach before a 14-year-old girl was stabbed in the shoulder and leg.

She admitted two counts of grievous bodily harm with intent and was ordered to spend four-and-a-half years in a youth detention facility.

A spokesman for Thames Valley Police said: “The incident occurred at around 6.50pm on Wednesday, November 8, 2017, when a large group of children between the ages of 14 and 16-years-old met at the Rivermead Leisure Centre Park in Richfield Avenue, Reading for a pre-arranged fight.

“The offender stabbed her victims, both 14-year-old girls, several times.

“One of her victims received four stab wounds, including one to her stomach, which required emergency surgery at the Royal Berkshire Hospital, while the other victim was stabbed three times and required stitches.”

The disturbing fight was caught on film.

Footage of the brawl circulated online and on social media and detectives urged viewers not to share it.

Speaking after the sentencing at Reading Crown Court, Detective constable James Woodcock, said: "This was a nasty attack on two teenage girls, one of whom sustained a serious injury which required immediate surgery.

"Thames Valley Police will not tolerate knife crime, and will always thoroughly investigate assaults such as these and bring offenders to justice.

"The offender had attended a pre-arranged fight and used a knife to cause these injuries, and I am pleased that she has been brought to justice and given a significant term of imprisonment.

"I would like to reassure people that this was an isolated incident and the offender was arrested at the scene."
