A 14-year-old boy was taken into custody after a stabbing Friday night in the 500 block of Wayne Street in Erie's East Side.

The 14-year-old fled the scene but was found by officers shortly after.

The victim was taken to the hospital for treatment of minor injuries.

The 14-year old was charged with aggravated assault and placed in the Edmund L.Thomas Detention Center.
