TREN­TON » A teenager was taken to the hos­pi­tal and is in sta­ble con­di­tion af­ter he was stabbed by another “school-age” boy, po­lice said.

The al­ter­ca­tion be­tween the two boys hap­pened Tues­day af­ter­noon, on the 100 block of Lib­erty Street, Tren­ton Po­lice spokesman Lt. Stephen Varn said. Po­lice are still look­ing into what sparked the con­fronta­tion.

It’s un­clear if the 14-year-old boy, who was trans­ported to Cap­i­tal Med­i­cal Re­gional Cen­ter where he was be­ing treated for lac­er­a­tions and stab wounds, has been in­ter­viewed by de­tec­tives.

Varn said the investigation is on­go­ing, and po­lice are in the midst of re­view­ing video sur­veil­lance to iden­tify a sus­pect.

“We’re con­fi­dent he will be iden­ti­fied,” Varn said of the sus­pect.

The vic­tim is be­lieved to be a stu­dent at the cap­i­tal city’s Grace A. Dunn Mid­dle School. Varn couldn’t con­firm that in­for­ma­tion. The stab­bing oc­curred a block away from the school af­ter school hours.

A spokes­woman for the Tren­ton school district said she didn’t know any­thing about the stab­bing.

De­tec­tive Kevin Linico is lead­ing the investigation into the stab­bing.
