Woman charged in N. Philly knife fight


Police have arrested a woman for her role in a chaotic knife fight that put four women in the hospital yesterday.

Jaqueline Simms, 38, lives on the 2000 block of N. Franklin Street, around the corner from where the melee erupted around 3:40 Thursday afternoon. Four women were taken to Temple University Hospital, one stabbed in the neck and another in the arm. None of the injuries are life-threatening.

Police believe the fight was between two groups of women, and had something to do with a man.

Simms was charged Thursday with aggravated assault and other offenses.
