Police said it was alleged the teen had been crash-tackled to the ground by an 18-year-old man who then ran from the scene.
The 18-year-old was arrested yesterday and has since been charged with reckless wounding causing grievous bodily harm.
He was granted conditional bail to appear before Manly Local Court on Wednesday 12 October.
