WAKEFIELD (CBS) – An 18-year-old was taken to an area hospital by MedFlight after he was stabbed in the neck with the shaft of a golf club during a fight in Wakefield.
Massachusetts State Police said three male friends, all 18-19 years old, were involved in a fight near Breakheart Reservation Tuesday night.
