New Castle County Police are looking for a 21-year-old Claymont woman they say stabbed her 16-year-old sister during a fight.

Officers were called to a home in the 700 block of Peachtree Road in Claymont around 7:30 p.m. Sunday for a report of a physical domestic dispute.

Police say the teen was stabbed in her right calf by her sister, Brandi Childs, who had fled the home. Police found a nine-and-a-half inch kitchen knife they say was used in the assault.

The teen was treated at the Christiana Hospital and released.

Police have a warrant charging Childs with second-degree assault, possession of a deadly weapon during the commission of a felony, offensive touching and terroristic threatening.
