A brawl in southwest Wichita on Wednesday led to a stabbing, according to police.
Sgt. Nikki Woodrow said a call about a fight involving more than a dozen people in the 1400 block of South Fern came in just before 3 p.m. on Wednesday.
Upon investigation, Woodrow said officers learned that 10 to 15 teenagers went to a location on South Fern, near Kellogg and Seneca, to confront a 15-year-old about an earlier incident.
During the confrontation, a 57-year-old man – who is related to the 15-year-old – was trying to stop the fighting when he and another man were punched and struck with bricks.
While he was being attacked, Woodrow said, the 57-year-old man pulled a knife and stabbed a 17-year-old boy in the abdomen. The 57-year-old was taken to an area hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.
The 17-year-old left the scene, Woodrow said, but was later admitted to a local hospital with serious injuries. Police were still investigating the case, though no charges had been filed as of late Thursday morning, Woodrow said.
