A 16-year-old high school student has been charged with 2nd-degree assault after she allegedly stabbed a fellow student multiple times in a fight on Tuesday.

Anika Daisy Quittschreiber stabbed another girl at Thomas Jefferson High School in Bloomington six times after a lunchtime altercation.

The fight broke out in the school's main entrance, with a school resource police officer arriving to find the victim had been stabbed in the stomach, with blood flowing onto the floor.

Quittschreiber was found in possession of a knife she'd used to stab the victim, who had  wounds to her torso, upper chest, thigh and forearm, the petition continues.

Video surveillance allegedly shows Quittschreiber walking through the main entrance of the school with her right hand concealed in her sweatshirt pocket.

She exchanged words with the victim, with the victim then punching Quittschreiber, who then pulled the knife and started stabbing her.

Prosecutors in Hennepin County have motioned for Quittschreiber to be charged as an adult, with a judge making a final decision.
