(WDAY) FARGO – Two women suffered stab wounds and some people were pepper sprayed when a fight erupted about noon Sunday, July 29, in a north Fargo neighborhood, a police spokesman said.
Fargo police were dispatched about 12:01 p.m. to 115 7th Ave. N., after a caller reported a fight involving a stabbing, Sgt. Collin Gnoinsky said.
When officers arrived, they learned that at least six and perhaps as many as 10 people had been fighting and more than one person had been stabbed, Gnoinsky said.
Gnoinsky said that the incident started with an argument between two groups of people known to police.
Before the stabbing occurred, someone had used pepper spray. Then a woman was stabbed in the back, Gnoinsky said. While the wound was significant, he said it was not life-threatening.
Another woman was also treated for some superficial stab wounds, he said.
One of the women was treated at Essentia Hospital and the other at Sanford Hospital, Gnoinsky said. Neither was identified.
Those who had been pepper-sprayed were using garden hoses to wash the irritating spray off, Gnoinsky said.
Police did recover a knife at the scene, however, it has not yet been tested to determine if it was used in one of the assaults, Gnoinsky said.
No arrests have been made in the case, Gnoinsky said, though police have spoken to everyone who had been involved in the fight.
Gnoinsky said the investigation is continuing and he emphasized that there is no danger to the public.
“These were two groups that have disagreed,” Gnoinsky said. “Officers have been there several times in the last few days,”
