A teenager stabbed her father after he caught her smoking.

The girl, who is under 16 and cannot be named for legal reasons, attacked her dad on June 6 when he tried to stop her leaving their home following an argument over cigarettes.

The teen pleaded guilty to a charge of maliciously and unlawfully stabbing him at Gloucester’s Youth Court.

In the father’s court statement he said he felt vulnerable after the attack and worried she may attack again on her return.

‘I do not hate my daughter but can’t forgive her for what she has done,’ he said.

‘She has shown no remorse and has refused any help from outside agencies.’

The incident started just after 9pm when the father returned home from shopping and spotted her smoking out of the window, the court was told.

The teen attempted to leave the house but was stopped by him.

‘He attempted to grab the object he could see in her hand, not realising it was a knife,’ prosecutor Graham Dono said.

The blade ended up slicing a six cm cut between his thumb and index finger, which later required nine stiches when he was taken to Gloucestershire Royal Hospital.

The girl then fled the house but was later arrested by police.

She spoke at the proceedings and admitted to the sequence of events, saying her parents searching her room had angered her.

‘I was very emotional at the time,’ she said.

‘I knew there would be a struggle if I left the house. I shouldn’t have done it.’

Magistrate Sue Pullen told the girl she may face a custodial sentence, subject to a report into her situation.
