EDGEWOOD, Md. (AP) — Harford County Sheriff’s office says five men were stabbed during an altercation in Edgewood.

Deputies called to Meadowood Drive just before midnight Saturday found a 22-year-old with chest injuries trying to help a 19-year-old with multiple wounds.

The men told deputies that they were walking from a gas station on Hanson Road when a group of men called out to them and one began stabbing them.

Sheriff’s office spokeswoman Monica Worrell says other victims include an 18-year-old who had been stabbed in the chest, a 17-year-old with a minor cut to his arm and a 21-year-old at MedStar Franklin Square Medical Center stabbed in the lower torso.

She says all are in stable condition.
