JAFFREY -- A teen received minor injuries in a reported stabbing at Sunshine Beach on Lake Contoocook Tuesday afternoon.

“It appears as though he was cut by this knife. It wasn’t bad, though, he didn’t even need to go to the hospital,” Lt. Terry Choate said of the 14-year-old.

Police responded to the beach on Contoocook Lake around 4:30 p.m. for a report of an altercation between two Jaffrey teens, 13 and 14, in which the 13-year-old “pulled out a knife and said he was going to stab the other,” Choate said.

A short time later, the 14-year-old was running into the water when he was cut with the knife by the 13-year-old, police said.

The 13-year-old was taken to the police station, after which he was released to his mother, police said.

“A juvenile petition is forthcoming,” Choate said.
