Members arrived on scene almost immediately to find an unresponsive male on the ground who had been stabbed. Police arrested two suspects attempting to flee the area and quickly discovered that one of the suspects had also been stabbed. The unresponsive male was taken to hospital by ambulance, where he remains, while the injured suspect was treated and later released back into police custody.
