Girl Fight 1906

Nina Tuttle, ten years of age, was arrested last evening for cutting Bessie Truitt, who was only 12 years old.  The two girls were found in a field just north of Parsons Cemetery by a man from Delmar who separated the girls and brought them to Salisbury.  Dr. F. M. Slemons dressed the wounds of the Truitt girl and found six different cuts on various parts of the arms and body.  While none of the wounds are serious, there is one on her wrist that is ugly and quite painful.  The Tuttle girl was carried before Justice of the Peace William A. Trader, and after a hearing committed temporarily to jail.  Definite action will be taken later.

From July 7 1906 the Courier, Salisbury Maryland.
