At 7:50 p.m., officials at St. Vincent Clay Hospital contacted the Brazil City Police Department about a 17-year-old male being treated for a stab wound.
Police Chief Terry Harrison, Patrolman Jeff Bucklin and Clay County Sheriff's Department Chief Deputy Rob Gambill investigated the case.
According to statements by the victim and several witnesses, the incident took place in the parking lot near Movie Gallery.
The victim and a couple of friends parked in the parking lot and went to another vehicle to visit with some friends before going to the rental store. While talking, an unknown female came over and stabbed the victim for no apparent reason.
During the investigation it was determined that the victim and the suspect had no prior relationship before the stabbing.
"We are unable to confirm a motive for the incident," Harrison said. "But we are investigating the possibility that the suspect did the stabbing on a dare."
The suspect, Holly N. Pierson, 19, Brazil, was later located at a Staunton residence, taken into custody and booked into the Clay County Justice Center on two preliminary felony charges shortly before 11 p.m.
Treated and released from St. Vincent Clay Hospital, Harrison said the victim could need surgery to repair the amount of damage done to his hand and left arm on Monday.
Authorities, who have recently run off large crowds of young people gathering on the parking lots at the request of local business owners, were surprised by the nature of the crime.
"It's just so unusual for our area to have something like this happen," Harrison said about the strange case, which is still under investigation. "We were really taken a back by it, but I believe this is an isolated incident."
Pierson's charges are being reviewed by the Clay County Prosecutor's Office for the possibility of more or stricter charges being filed.
Pierson, remains incarcerated at the justice center on a $10,000 bond, awaiting arraignment for criminal recklessness with a deadly weapon, a Class D felony, and battery with serious bodily injury, a Class C felony.
