A 17-year-old Wayland teen is facing charges for allegedly being involved in a planned fight on Green Way, according to police. 

A warrant has been issued for the teen, but police have not yet located him, according to Wayland Police Chief Robert Irving. 

The teen is facing the following charges: assault and battery with a dangerous weapon (baseball bat) and assault by means of a dangerous weapon, according to police. 

The charges stem form a Jan. 17 incident that began at 4:42 p.m., Irving said. Officers responded to the cul-de-sac on Green Way and found a large group of people fighting, Irving said. Many of the fighters fled the scene, but officers managed to stop several. 

One person was taken to a hospital, Irving said. Also, a pocket knife was found at the scene but police don't believe it was used during the fight, Irving said. 

The officers' investigation determined the fight had been planned, Irving said. Irving did not know the exact circumstances that led up to the fight. However, Irving said, it involved texts and phone calls exchanged between at least two people. 

"It is unusual. We don't really have this type of a situation," Irving said.
