Two women are in custody after a triple stabbing Thursday night in Pittsburgh's South Side.

Police said one person was stabbed in the neck, another had cuts and bruises around her right eye and the third had a stab wound on top of her head.

Jaime Walker, 26, and Shanequa Smith, 23, were both charged with aggravated assault, criminal conspiracy, reckless endangerment and weapons charges.

Police said medics transported two injured females to UPMC Presbyterian Hospital in fair condition. The third left the scene after talking with police.

Zone 3 police were called to the Green Front Inn, 2341 Carson St., at 10:10 p.m. for a fight involving weapons, according to a police press release. The caller described the two women involved: one was wearing grey sweatpants and the other was dressed in a purple skirt, police said.

The pair was gone when officers arrived, but they saw two women fitting that description going into CoGo's in the 2400 block of East Carson.

An employee there told police she saw the two women come in the bar and walk toward three people. The woman told her that one woman, later identified as Ms. Smith, carried a stun gun and the other, Ms. Walker, had a knife, according to police.

One of the women charged had her dog with her. Police said animal control took it into custody.

Ms. Walker and Ms. Smith were transported to the Allegheny County Jail.
