Police Say One Teen Stabbed Another After Web Posting

CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. (AP) -- Police in Chattanooga say the stabbing of one teenage girl by another one is the first case of cyber bullying that has led to a crime locally.

Investigators have charged a 14-year-old with stabbing a 15-year-old after a message was posted on a Facebook Web page.

The younger girl is charged with aggravated assault.

School resource officers say they've seen an increase in cyber bullying as they monitor Web sites.

Hamilton County Sheriff's Sergeant Matt Vandegriff says it's the computerized version of the schoolyard bully of times past.
