A teenager is in prison charged with stabbing a man in a Lancaster city home, police said.
Michael Cardona, 16, of the 400 block of High Street, stabbed a 24-year-old man in a home in that block around 11:30 p.m. Monday, city police Sgt. Mike Branner reported.
The stabbing victim was taken to Lancaster General Hospital for treatment of the arm wound, which was not considered to be life-threatening. He later was released.
Cardona, who police say injured the victim while attempting to stab another person, turned himself in at the city police station around 12:45 a.m. Tuesday, Branner said.
Cardona, the victim and the third person Cardona was trying to stab all live at the same address, police said.
Police charged Cardona as an adult. He was charged with aggravated assault before District Judge Cheryl Hartman and committed to Lancaster County Prison in lieu of $15,000 cash bail.
Police said they didn't know the motive of the stabbing, Branner said.
