FORT DODGE — An Iowa high school homecoming dance was interrupted this weekend when a 17-year-old was stabbed in the back.
Police responded to the incident just before 11 p.m. Saturday and turned Fort Dodge High School's dance into a crime scene.
The injured teen was flown to a Des Moines hospital for treatment, but his injuries were not considered life-threatening.
Several witnesses helped police identify a 17-year-old suspect who had fled the dance before officers arrived. He was arrested and taken to a juvenile detention facility.
Max Bly made an initial appearance Monday at Webster County Magistrate Court. He faces a charge of willful injury and will be tried as an adult.
Bly's bond has been set at $10,000 cash or surety. Court records do not list an attorney.
The name of the victim, who remains hospitalized, has not been released.
