A 17-year-old Houghton Avenue boy was charged with felony first-degree assault this afternoon, less than a day after a male stabbing victim was taken to Erie County Medical Center, Buffalo police said.

The stabbing occurred about 9:40 p.m. Monday in the first block of Houghton.

Police said the teen charged is accused of inflicting a serious injury during an argument with the other male, whose age, name and condition were not released.
