PORTLAND, Maine — A Portland teenager is facing a charge of aggravated assault after she allegedly stabbed a man at a Veranda Street residence, police said.

The 15-year-old, who police are not naming because she is a juvenile, stabbed the 22-year-old victim during a domestic dispute just after 3 p.m. Monday, Lt. Gary Rogers told the Bangor Daily News.

The man suffered injuries to his neck and thigh and was taken to Maine Medical Center for treatment and released, Rogers said.

The girl was taken to the police station and booked before being released to the custody of her parents.
