Just a day after Kane Brown took to Facebook asking for prayers for his sister, more details are emerging.

According to the Chattanooga Times Free Press, police in Chattanooga are searching for a 16-year-old girl who may be the culprit behind the stabbing.

At this time, police are not releasing the suspect’s name because she is a minor. Reports show that she and 19-year-old Heidi Swafford got into a fight around 4:30 p.m. on Tuesday, July 26. Police are still searching for the reason behind the fight.

The disturbance took place off Dodds Avenue in the 3300 block of Woodside Street in Chattanooga, Tenn. A warrant has been issued for the girl’s arrest for charges including aggravated assault and attempted second-degree murder.
