Elaine Boelke and her husband say they were sleeping when they heard someone screaming and pounding on their front door.

“My husband was at the door. I was behind him. He was trying to calm the young man down that was on the porch bleeding,” said Boelke.

Police later on identified the man who was at the door as 18-year-old Trei Applebey.

Boelke says there was another teen there that was also bleeding.

"As soon as he saw me on my phone, the one gentleman took off across the street,” said Boelke

Police say the person who ran, ended up being the suspect.

Authorities say another stabbing victim, 18-year-old,Noah Williams, was inside an apartment across the street.

"Oshkosh Fire and Rescue responded immediately to the scene, and attempted life saving measures, and were unable to revive the victim,” said Dean Smith, Oshkosh Chief of Police.

On Friday night, Williams’ mother said she wanted to set the record straight about her son.

“He was a sweet kid that loved animals and his family, and he was murdered by a mother and deserves justice,” said Bobby Williams.

After getting a description, police say they found the suspect and took him into custody.

Police are not releasing the identity of the suspect. They do say he is 17-years-old and from Oshkosh.
