During the fight, 28-year-old Kelechi Oparah, of Dorchester, allegedly stabbed the approximately 17-year-old victim in the leg, police said. Police have not released the victim’s name.

EMS workers took the victim to Boston Medical Center, a spokeswoman said. He sustained injuries that were not life-threatening, police said.

Oparah was taken into custody and is expected to be arraigned on Monday in Roxbury District Court, police said. He is charged with assault and battery with a deadly weapon, said Estrada.
