Posted: Updated:

PHOENIX -- A 14-year-old boy was stabbed after four suspects approached a group of juveniles near a light rail station in central Phoenix late Wednesday night, according to police.

Officers responded to a cutting call at Steele Indian School Park around midnight and located the victim with a cut to the inside of his right arm, according to Phoenix police spokesman Sgt. Trent Crump..

The juveniles told the officers that they had exited the Light Rail on Central Avenue just north of Indian School Road when the suspects approached them.

Crump said it appears one of the suspects attempted to take a necklace from one of the juveniles and another suspect stabbed the victim on the arm.

The group of juveniles began running east inside the park and the suspects were last seen running north on Central Avenue.

Officers searched the area but were not able to locate any suspects.

The stabbing victim was taken to a local hospital with non life-threatening injuries.

Police do not have any suspect information at this time.
