The caller told police someone broke up the fight and a possible victim was sitting on a bench in the area with a friend. When officers arrived at the area everyone had left.
Shortly before 3 p.m., hospital officials notified police that a 16-year-old boy had arrived with suspicious injuries. Officers learned the boy had been stabbed at least three times.
Police said the boy reluctantly admitted he was stabbed during a fight with a friend of his younger sister. A 15-year-old boy was identified as the suspect and brought to the Oakdale Police Department by his guardian.
The boy was arrested on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon and released to his guardian, police said. Police did not release the suspect's name because he is a minor.
Police ask anyone with information about the fight to call Cpl. Joe Johnson at 847-2231.
