A Buffalo teen was stabbed with a butcher knife Wednesday while walking home on the East Side, Buffalo police said.

The 16-year-old told police he was stabbed by an unknown assailant while walking on Urban Street near Kehr Street. The victim ran to his home, where his mother called police.

He was taken to Erie County Medical Center with what police described as a “small gash.” Hospital officials said Thursday he was treated and released.
