City police arrested a 15-year-old girl yesterday and charged her with stabbing three people in two attacks in May, including one near a light rail stop in downtown Baltimore that snarled traffic for hours as authorities investigated.

Agent Donny Moses, a police spokesman, said Sharee Carter of the 800 block of Montpelier St. in Better Waverly was charged as an adult with one count of attempted first-degree murder and four counts of first-degree assault, with assault and weapons violations. She was arrested at her home, questioned at police headquarters and taken to Central Booking and Intake Center for processing about 9 a.m. Her bail status was not available late yesterday afternoon.

Police say she was involved in a stabbing in Cherry Hill on May 3 in which the victim survived. Additional details on that incident were not immediately available.

Four days later, police said, she was involved in a fight on Howard Street in which two people were injured in a knife attack. The incident created extensive delays on light rail as city police and Maryland Transit Administration police cordoned off the area.
