GARY | A 4-year-old boy and a teen were injured Sunday in a fight at the Dorie Miller housing development, police said.

The fight started at 4 p.m. between a 15-year-old girl and a 16-year-old girl on Maine Street and spilled into a house on the 2000 block of Alabama Street, Gary police said. 

The 15-year-old girl went into the house of one of her relatives and the 16-year-old followed her. At some point during the fight, the 15-year-old girl threw a knife that wounded a 14-year-old boy in the leg and a 4-year-old boy in the foot, police said.

Gary Police Chief Wade Ingram said the stab wounds were superficial and were not life threatening. The two boys were being treated at local hospitals Sunday night.

The two girls were charged with battery and child endangerment, police said. The 16-year-old girl also faces a residential entry charge.

The 14-year-old boy who was wounded is facing a battery charge and is accused of helping the 15-year-old girl during the fight, police said.
