Iberia Parish Sheriff's Deputies responded  to Loreauville High School at 7:15 AM this morning in reference to a fight in the cafeteria.

Arriving deputies found an 18-year-old female had been involved in a fight with a 16-year-old female in the cafeteria. During the fight the 16-year old female armed herself with a knife and cut the victim multiple times.  A school employee attempting to stop the fight received minor injuries. 

A second fight occurred between two 16-year-old females but no weapons were used. 

The 18-year-old victim was transported by Acadian Ambulance Service to the Iberia Medical Center with non life threatening injuries.  The school employee refused treatment at the scene. 

The three 16-year-old females were taken into custody and will be released to their parents.  It is believed the fight was due to an argument over social media.
