Police have charged a 15-year-old Amber Hellesten with attempted murder after she stabbed another teen.

Investigators said the 14-year-old victim was stabbed in the chest with a knife in the Point Breeze section of the city at about 8 p.m. Tuesday.

He was rushed to Children's Hospital of Philadelphia, where Chief Inspector Scott Small described his condition as "very critical."
