(CBS/WBZ/AP) BOSTON - A Boston teen has been charged with stabbing her boyfriend's ex-girlfriend while the woman was pushing a baby stroller along a city street. 

Samia Jones, 17, pleaded not guilty Tuesday to a charge of assault with intent to murder. Her bail was set at $50,000. 

Officials say the incident began on Monday afternoon when Daquan Sparks, the 17-year-old father of the victim's child, called the victim and requested a meeting to talk about sneakers for their child, reports the Boston Globe.

The victim reportedly told police that Sparks restrained her while Jones stabbed her six times with a 10-12 inch knife. 

Police say the victim, who is in her early 20s, collapsed outside an ice cream shop where customers rushed to help her, reports CBS Boston.

According to the Globe, a police report states that the victim sustained injuries to her torso, face, right leg and back, but the injuries are not life-threatening. The 8-month-old child was unhurt.

Police are reportedly seeking a warrant for Sparks' arrest.

The Globe reports that Jones, who reportedly has a four-month-old child with Sparks, made "obscene gestures" to the media stuck her tongue out in court Tuesday. She is scheduled to be back in court April 23.
