FREDERICK COUNTY, Md. — A juvenile was stabbed Friday afternoon in Doubs Meadow Park in Myersville, according to a statement from the Frederick County Sheriff's Office (FCSO). 

Officers were dispatched to the scene at around 1:25 p.m. after receiving a report about an assault. When they arrived they said they found a teenage boy with "minor wounds." According to the FCSO, the teen — who was attacked by someone with a pocketknife — refused medical care. 

FSCO released a description of the suspect who stabbed the teen. The suspect is described by the sheriff's office as "a white male, approximately 20-30 years of age, 6-foot-1, heavyset, wearing a brown hoodie and a camouflage neck covering."
