A Red Lion teenager is facing attempted homicide charges after stabbing another teen multiple times during a fight Tuesday, state police said.

The fight ensued after a drug deal, troopers said.

Anthony Greg Rosenblatt, 18, is facing a felony count of attempted homicide and a felony count of aggravated assault, according to online court documents.

He was arraigned Wednesday, and bail was denied. He is in York County Prison and faces a March 24 preliminary hearing before District Judge John H. Fishel.  

State police said in a news release they responded about 4:30 p.m. Tuesday to a report of a male down with head and neck wounds in an alley in the 400 block of South Pine Street in the borough.

State police also listed a 17-year-old male and 16-year-old female, both from Red Lion, as being at the scene.

Rosenblatt was interviewed and admitted to stabbing the teen multiple times during the fight, troopers said.

State police said a blue four-door sedan with two unknown men, both 20, fled the area before troopers arrived.
