Bond has been set for a 17-year-old girl charged with aggravated assault that happened in July.

On July 31, a Laurel woman was stabbed, and the 17-year-old was taken into custody in connection to the incident.

According to the Laurel Police Department, Alicia Polk has been identified as the suspect, and she has been transferred as adult status by the Jones County Youth Court.

She now faces one count of aggravated assault and is being housed in the Jones County Jail. Her bond was set at $75,000.
