PITTSFIELD, Mass. (AP) - A juvenile is headed to court following a weekend stabbing at a birthday party in Pittsfield.

The suspect in Saturday’s stabbing is scheduled to appear Tuesday in juvenile court on a charge of assault and battery with a dangerous weapon.

Police say the suspect was apprehended at about 8 p.m. Saturday, several hours after the stabbing, and spent the rest of the weekend at a youth detention facility in Springfield.

Authorities tell The Berkshire Eagle (https://bit.ly/W5GALR ) the victim underwent surgery at Berkshire Medical Center for what police described as a “non-life threatening” stab wound to the stomach.

A steak knife allegedly used in the attack has been recovered.
