A 17-YEAR-OLD has been charged with assault after two teenagers were rushed to hospital after being stabbed in Westy.
Police were called at 1.05am on Sunday following reports of a disturbance on Bridewater Avenue and found a 16-year-old girl with a deep cut to her left arm and a 16-year-old boy with two deep cuts to his neck.
Both have now been discharged from hospital.
