Story By Newswatch 12 Newsteam

MOLE LAKE - Forest County Deputies arrested two people after a weekend stabbing in Mole Lake.

The report of the stabbing came in Saturday night around 9:30.

Deputies learned there was a fight between 17 year old Bradley McGeshick and 17 year old Pagelyn Ducat-Cornell.

McGeshick had what deputies called superficial wounds.

He was arrested for substantial battery and disorderly conduct.

On Sunday, deputies got word that Ducat-Cornell was seeking treatment at a local hospital.

She got arrested for endangering safety by use of a dangerous weapon.

A check of electronic court records this morning showed formal charges have not yet been filed by the Forest County District Attorney's office.

Deputies do not think the stabbing was gang related.
