Amsterdam police are investigating the apparent stabbing of a city teenager Thursday night after he was found near the intersection of Guy Park Avenue and Northampton Road.

At approximately 8:17 p.m. Thursday, police responded to the scene and located a 17-year-old Amsterdam male laying in the roadway. Police said the teenager had apparently been stabbed in his upper chest area. The victim’s injury was described as not life threatening.

The alleged stabbing was believed to have occurred in the immediate area, but not necessarily where the teenager was found.

The Amsterdam Fire Department treated the teenager at the scene and transported him to St. Mary’s Hospital for further medical treatment.

At the scene, police were attempting to interview Adonys Telles, 21, of 317 West Main St., to determine how or if he had any involvement when he allegedly became combative with officers and refused to provide information about the incident.

Police attempted to place Telles under arrest for disorderly conduct, but he allegedly resisted arrest. Police reportedly used pepper spray to subdue Telles and he allegedly spit at an officer’s face.

Telles was charged Thursday with obstruction of governmental administration, resisting arrest, harassment and disorderly conduct, according to police.
