A woman was killed and a teenager was wounded in separate incidents on the city’s streets Tuesday.
Police said around 9:30 p.m. on the 5300 block of Lena Street in Germantown, a 27-year-old woman, Teniesha Iseley, was stabbed multiple times in the chest in a dispute with another woman.
Iseley, of the 5200 block of Glenloch Street in Frankfurt, died a short time later at Einstein Medical Center.
Armed with a description of a woman with red braids and wearing pink shots as the suspect, police quickly arrested a 26-year-old woman about three blocks away, Chief Inspector Scott Small said. The suspected was not identified pending charges.
The nature of the dispute remained under investigation, police said Wednesday morning after initial reports suggested it was over a parking spot.
Earlier, about 3:40 p.m., a 16-year-old boy was shot while riding an ATV near 46th and Market Streets in West Philadelphia. He was wounded in the left leg and taken to Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, where he was reported in stable condition.
