An after-school fight Thursday (Feb. 10) between two boys from Palo Alto High School ended with one being taken to the hospital and the other being sought by police.
Paramedics received a call at 4:02 p.m. regarding the fight at the California Avenue train station between two boys, who friends said are both 15. One teen accused the other of stealing from him and the fight ensued, according to the friends, who were witnesses.
During the argument, as the boys wrestled on the ground, one youth pulled out a skateboard key and struck the other on the head with the piece of metal at least twice, drawing blood.
The injured boy was taken to the hospital, where police were planning to take his statement. The other boy fled, friends of the injured boy said.
Police have not yet released further information regarding the incident.
