A Malden teenager was injured in a fight outside a Newton home Saturday night after a party involving mostly Newton South High School students swelled to more than 100 people, according to Newton police.

At around 11 p.m., police went to the house on Wendell Road in Newton Centre after receiving an anonymous call that fighting was taking place outside.

Police arrested one teen on disorderly conduct charges and said they would charge the party’s 16-year-old host with furnishing alcohol to minors.

The 17-year-old victim went to Whidden Hospital in Everett with a 2-centimeter cut to his back, according to the police report. The teen told police that a group of males had challenged him to a fight outside the party.

He said he did not see or feel the wound when it happened, but noticed the cut when he returned to Malden. He contacted his father, who took him to the Everett hospital.

Jacob Tepper, 17, of Dudley Road was arrested and charged with disorderly conducted after he allegedly yelled expletives at police, demanding a warrant, police said. Tepper told police the house was his residence, but when he was apprehended, he said he did not live there, according to the police report.

The 16-year-old host told 40 students at Newton South that he was having a party because his mother was out and his father was away, said police. He said he told the students to bring their own alcohol, and did not provide any.

By the time police arrived at the house, the party had grown to 100 people.

When police arrived, they observed a teenager in the basement vomiting. Empty beer cans, bottles, and shot glasses were scattered about the house.
