After being attacked, she was transported to St. Joseph Regional Medical Center in Paterson, New Jersey. Doctors at the Paterson hospital treated her for two stab wounds.
The two suspects have been charged with aggravated assault. Additionally, the third woman who allegedly tried to hide the knife after the attack has been charged with tampering with evidence.
