The Jamestown Police Department said Tyler M. Hough, 18, was taken into custody after officers were called Sunday around 9:50 p.m. to the area of West Fourth and Cherry streets for a reported stabbing.

A 16-year-old male was found to have been stabbed in the leg following an altercation involving “several subjects,” the Jamestown Police Department said in a news release.

The 16-year-old was transported to UPMC Chautauqua for treatment of non-life-threatening injuries.
