A Turtle Creek teenager was stabbed in the abdomen during a fight over marijuana early Friday, according to Allegheny County Police.

Police charged Marc Daxavier Ely II, 18, of East McKeesport with one count of aggravated assault as a witness told county homicide detectives that he saw Ely stab Quentell Saunders-Salmon, 14, during a brawl outside the Oak Avenue home the boy shares with his mother, grandmother and two siblings, according to a criminal complaint.

Saunders-Salmon was taken to UPMC Mercy in Uptown, where was listed in stable condition. Ely is in the Allegheny County Jail awaiting arraignment.

Raheem White, 32, told police that he asked to ride last night in a station wagon with a group of young men that included Ely. They went to a 7-Eleven convenience store, where White bought a cigar he intended to use to smoke marijuana, police said.

The group dropped White off in front of the Oak Street home where he lives with his girlfriend, Saunders-Salmon's mother. White told police that the young men became upset when White did not share his marijuana with them.

Minutes later, someone broke the front window of the home and a fight ensued outside. Police arrived about 1:17 a.m.

White picked Ely's photo out of a lineup, identifying him as the person he saw stab the boy.
