A 21-year-old woman has been charged with intent to murder after she stabbed another woman in a row over a parking spot, police say.

Shadivia Keauslatyke Phillips, from Detroit, is facing charges of assault with intent to murder, assault with intent to do great bodily harm and felonious assault after a vicious brawl in the city on Sunday.

Phillips was one of two women arrested after footage of the fight went viral on social media. It is unclear if police will charge another other 22-year-old suspect.

A 30-year-old woman was taken to hospital for stab wounds after the attack and is expected to make a full recovery, according to Click 2 Houston.

She can be seen at the end of the footage pulling up her top to reveal bloody injuries on her chest.

The video shows the women – one in a black hotpants and top, one in a white top – rolling on the grass in Rouge Park.

At one point the woman in the hotpants wraps her legs around the neck of the woman in the white top.

They are separated by the crowd, but then the woman in the hotpants lifts up her top to reveal a bloody wound under her bra.

She shouts at the other woman but then collapses and is carried away by the crowd.

Police said the fight started when one group of women was trying to pull into a parking spot, only for a second group of women to rush in and ‘steal’ the space.

The women then started brawling, police said.

As well as the woman with a chest wound, another was cut on her arm with what was either a knife or a box cutter, police told Fox 2 Detroit.

‘We have an issue out here with how to cope with our problems that we have,’ Detroit police commander Aric Tosqui said.

‘People arguing over a parking spot escalating to violence, it’s ridiculous that people act that way.’

He also complained about the existence of the footage.

‘They’re not recording to give video to police, they’re recording because they found it to be entertaining,’ he said.
