AMHERST GIRL, 5, CUT WITH SWISS ARMY KNIFE

A 5-year-old girl was cut above the eye by a boy with a Swiss Army knife late Saturday afternoon, Amherst police confirmed Sunday.

Whether the incident was "accidental or intentional" is under investigation by the Juvenile Bureau, Lt. James Gerhard said.

The girl was cut by a boy about her age, or older, about 4:47 p.m. Saturday at 530 Allenhurst Road, Amherst.

She suffered "a small quarter-inch cut near her left eye," Gerhard said. The girl was treated in Children's Hospital and released.
