Port Richey, Florida -- A 17-year-old boy has been charged with the attempted murder of another teen at a Pasco home on July 8.
Detectives say during a fight with another 17-year-old boy, Nicholas Eady stabbed him in the throat. The boy was rushed to Bayonet Point Hospital where he is currently on a chest tube after suffering a deflated lung.
During the investigation, witnesses at the scene in the 7400 block of Fairfax Drive identified Eady as the person who stabbed the teen.
Detectives say they believe Eady fled shortly after the stabbing and had just recently returned to Pasco County. He was arrested on Aug. 3 at Gulf View Square Mall and taken to the JDC.
Police say they plan to file additional charges against Eady for stabbing another teen in the back multiple times during the incident.
He is currently being held without bond.
