Teen sentenced for luring stabbing victim to Richland park

The teen girl involved in the stabbing and robbery of a 19-year-old Richland man has been sentenced.

The now 15-year-old will spend a minimum of two years in a juvenile rehabilitation facility. She pleaded guilty to robbery in the first degree on Sept. 11 and was sentenced on Sept. 18.

Back in February, the then-14-year-old teen planned to steal marijuana from a 19-year-old man. He drove the girl to Craighill Park. That’s when she texted another man, telling him they were there. She had contacted him and another person the night before about luring the 19-year-old to the park.

They allegedly went to the park and got in the backseat of the car, putting a gun to the victim’s head and a knife to his throat.

When the victim tried to run away, the two men wrestled him to the ground and stabbed him 11 times, court documents said.

The victim was taken to the hospital and later released. It’s not clear if the two men were found and arrested.

According to the prosecutor’s office, the teen’s sentence was based on her age and criminal history.
