Girl, 6, Stabs Playmate Over Dolls

A 6-year-old girl stabbed a 7-year-old playmate in the back with a steak knife in a fight over Barbie dolls, police said.

The older girl was hospitalized in serious condition Monday with a 2-1/2-inch-deep wound.

The girls got into “a hair-pulling, name-calling fight” over the dolls, Lt. Tim Atchley said. The 6-year-old told her friend she was going to kill her, went home and returned to her friend’s apartment with a knife.

Police questioned the younger girl and released her to her parents. Atchley said there is little that can be done because of the girl’s age.
