TROY — One juvenile is in custody and one is being treated following a stabbing late Friday night.
According to Troy Police Department Detective Nick Freisthler charges will be filed on Monday against the male teen who stabbed another in what he called “an ongoing argument.”
Freisthler said the male juvenile victim who was stabbed will survive.
“The victim is going to be alright, he is being treated,” Freisthler said.
The Troy Police Department, along with a Troy Fire Department medic unit, were called to to the 800 block of Fountain Street around 10:15 p.m. Friday. The caller said a person had been stabbed in the chest.
Officers arrived to find a teenage victim with a stab wound, while the suspect had fled on foot.
Medics transported the victim to an area hospital.
Troy police were joined by units from the Miami County Sheriff’s Office in searching for the suspect. Following several calls to Miami County 9-1-1 with reported sightings around the area of the Miami County Fairgrounds, a sheriff’s office deputy spotted the suspect climb a fence and enter the fairgrounds. A perimeter was set up and a search conducted using a sheriff’s office K-9 unit and drone. It is unclear when or where the victim was apprehended at this time.
Freisthler said the teen is detained at the West Central Juvenile Detention Center.
