Naperville police have arrested a 15-year-old boy in the Friday night stabbing of another boy, also 15, during a fight in downtown Naperville.

Police said they responded to a report of a fight in progress shortly before 9 p.m. in the alley behind the Water Street parking garage near Webster Street. One officer found the victim in a parking lot in the 400 block of South Main Street.

 

He was transported to a local hospital for treatment of non-life-threatening injuries, police said.

After a preliminary investigation, a juvenile was arrested, police said in a news release Saturday. The victim and the offender knew each other and engaged in a physical altercation prior to the stabbing, police said.
