Police arrested two 14-year-old girls after another teenager was stabbed and suffered a serious arm injury in Harvard, officials said.
The Harvard Police Department responded around 10:03 a.m. on February 16 to the 800 block of West Thompson Street in Harvard.
Harvard Deputy Police Chief Tyson Bauman said police received a call for a report of a person who was stabbed.
Officers arrived and found a 17-year-old girl, who is a Harvard resident, with a severe laceration to her left forearm.
Paramedics with the Harvard Fire Protection District transported the teen to Mercy Hospital in Harvard.
She was treated and later released to a parent, Bauman said.
Bauman said the stabbing was the result of a disagreement over a vape.
The suspects involved, identified as two 14-year-old girls from Harvard, had fled the scene.
Officers arrested them approximately 30 minutes after the incident, Bauman said.
One of them was charged with aggravated battery using a deadly weapon and transported to Kane County Juvenile Justice Center.
The second juvenile was petitioned to the McHenry County Court Services on a battery charge and released to a parent.
