Police say they were called to the 16100 block of S. Cooper Street on reports of several males fighting.
Officers arrived and contacted the occupants of a vehicle which was seen leaving that area. One officer noticed blood on the back of the victim, who police say, did not realize that he had been stabbed.
Johnson County Med-Act responded to the vehicle stop on the ramp from U.S. 169 Highway to 151st Street and reported the man's injury to be serious but, not immediately life-threatening.
He was transported to an area hospital for further treatment.
A 19-year-old male was arrested at the Cooper Street address and a folding knife was recovered by officers.
The case will be forwarded to the Johnson County District Attorney's Office for charging.
