Two women were charged yesterday in an argument that turned violent on Thanksgiving night in West Baltimore, when three women were stabbed and taken to Sinai Hospital.

Michelle Robinson, 33, of the 2500 block of Shirley Ave. in West Baltimore was charged with attempted murder, second-degree assault and conspiracy. Shameeka Reaves, 16, of the 700 block of N. Gilmor Ave. in West Baltimore was charged as an adult with attempted murder, first- and second-degree assault, carrying a knife with intent to injure, and conspiracy, among other charges.

According to court documents, Tammie Wright and her daughter Lauren Carter arrived at a house in the 2500 block of Shirley Ave., where they were subletting rooms, Thursday evening and encountered Robinson, who also rented an apartment there. Robinson accused Carter of taking money from her room, the documents say.

The women also exchanged words about Robinson's 15-year-old daughter and Reaves, the documents say. Robinson then called her daughter, who was with Reaves in the Druid Hill area, and the two girls went over to the Shirley Avenue house, where the fight ensued. Carter was stabbed in the forehead and back of the head with a steak knife. According to court documents, when Wright tried to intervene, she was injured in the thumb. Robinson's daughter also was stabbed, apparently by accident, in the arm.

Information was not available yesterday on the conditions of the victims. The injuries were not believed to be life-threatening. Robinson and Reaves were being held at Central Booking and Intake Center, according to online court documents.
