A coach at an East Garfield Park high school was stabbed and seriously injured by a 16-year-old girl while trying to break up a fight outside the school, police said.
The 21-year-old woman came upon the fight at about 3:20 p.m. Wednesday behind the Al Raby School for Community and Environment in the 3400 block of West Walnut Street, according to Police News Affairs Officer John Mirabelli.
Several teens were fighting, and the coach tried to separate two of them, police said. One of the two teens, a 16-year-old girl, brandished a knife and stabbed the coach in the chest, Mirabelli said.
