A Moruya mother has warned of the potential dangers of illicit drug-use after her daughter was "stabbed in the head" in Moruya on Tuesday, April 9.
The mother, who will remain anonymous, said her daughter was walking home late on Tuesday night when she was asked by another young girl if she wanted to smoke a drug that appeared to be 'ice'.
When the 16-year-old refused, the mother said the young girl smashed the pipe she was using, and stabbed her daughter with a shard of glass.
The mother said her daughter was "shaken" after the incident, and is "scared to walk around".
An ambulance spokeswoman confirmed the incident, saying a paramedic unit was called to Moruya at 10.45pm on Tuesday night.
She said the victim was treated for a head wound at the scene, and transported to Batemans Bay Hospital.
A police spokesman said an assault occurred on Tuesday night "near the Moruya library", but stopped short of calling it a stabbing.
He said the victim suffered a wound consistent with a cut, but not a stab.
