SHEBOYGAN (NBC 26) — A 15-year-old is under arrest and a 16-year-old is recovering from stab wounds after what police said was a planned fight early Sunday.

Sheboygan Police Department said officers were called Sunday to a north side home for a report of a person who had been stabbed. Police said officers found a 16-year-old Sheboygan boy who had two non-life-threatening knife wounds to his back.

Police said officers learned that the teen engaged in a planned fight with another teen at a north side park. The suspect, a 15-year-old, also from Sheboygan, was arrested shortly after officers arrived. The suspect has been referred to juvenile authorities.

Police said the two teens knew each other and the fight was prearranged.
