Teen accused in stabbing at party

A 19-year-old Herndon resident was arrested Friday on charges that he stabbed a fellow teenage party-goer at a celebration two days before.

Police say that Jose Ortiz stabbed a 17-year-old man after an argument at a party in the 2100 block of Astoria Ave.

The victim remained hospitalized Friday, and police said his condition was not life-threatening.

Ortiz was charged with malicious wounding.
