The victim was found with a serious stab wound at around 9.30pm last night in Wilmslow, Cheshire's Golden Triangle popular with Premier League footballers and celebrities.
He was rushed to Manchester Children's Hospital, where he is said to be in a stable condition, according to police.
His injuries are not thought to be life-threatening.

Cheshire Police said the arrested youth was from Stockport and was currently in custody, being quizzed by detectives.
A police cordon has been placed around the scene on Dean Road Row.
A car park near to a Tesco Express had been taped off, according to an eye witness.
