Authorities say the victim suffered superficial cuts from knife on the third floor of the school in the 1500 block of West Washington Boulevard. The victim was taken to a local hospital for cuts on her arm.

LAPD confirmed that the suspect was either an older sister or relative of one of the girls who was involved in the altercation.
