A 50-year-old Earl Place woman remained hospitalized at Erie County Medical Center Friday night with stab wounds suffered when a 16-year-old boy stabbed her with a pair of scissors as she tried to break up a fight between him and another man Thursday afternoon outside a barbershop in the 1300 block of Hertel Avenue.

The youth was charged with second-degree assault and criminal possession of a weapon.

Police officials are not releasing the names of the victim and suspect.
