She was charged with wounding person with intent to cause grievous bodily harm and bailed to appear in a children’s court next Tuesday (March 23).

The injured girl was treated at the scene by paramedics before being taken to Westmead Hospital in a serious stable condition.

 ‘This was a challenging job, not only because of the patient’s injuries, but also because it happened at a train station packed with commuters,’ NSW Ambulance Inspector Andrew McAlpine said in a statement.

 ‘One of the main concerns paramedics have treating stab wounds is internal injuries, so getting her to hospital as quickly as possible was paramount.’

The incident caused travel disruptions with train services towards Chatwood not stopping at Rouse Hill ‘due to a police operation on platform one’.
