Hutchinson teen stabbed, another arrested 06 Mar 18

A 17-year-old Hutchinson male was taken to a Twin Cities Hospital for treatment after he was stabbed by another Hutchinson 17-year-old male Saturday morning. Police say the victim was taken to Hennepin County Medical Center for treatment of a stab wound to the upper-left chest area. The suspect was taken into custody Saturday morning shortly after the incident. The McLeod County Attorney’s Office has filed a Juvenile Delinquency Petition with the courts, charging the male with attempted 1st degree assault and 2nd degree assault. Police say in their investigation the victim attempted to purchase some items from a female for an agreed price of $300. A disagreement occurred when only $100 was paid to the female. The female reported to her brother what had occurred. Authorities did not say what the transaction involved.
