The incident happened in the Dean’s Walk area of Lurgan at around 9pm on Friday night.

The PSNI in Craigavon has now confirmed that a 14-year-old girl has been charged tonight (Saturday).

She has been charged with grievous bodily harm with intent.

The girl will remain in custody and is due to appear at Lisburn Magistrates’ Court on Monday morning.

The PSNI have praised the medics who came to the young girl’s aid.

“We see the absolute commitment from our NHS colleagues every day and this is yet another example of their life saving work, for which we all owe them our gratitude.”
