A Monroe County teen is facing charges after he allegedly stabbed another teen with a pocket knife following a confrontation at a county restaurant.

According to troopers a 17-year-old male from Kunkletown and a 16-year-old male from Effort, were involved in a physical altercation in the parking lot. During the incident the 17-year-old pulled out a pocket knife and stabbed the 16-year-old in the abdomen area.
