HAVERHILL -- Police say two people were stabbed late last night and another suffered numerous cuts in a fight that broke out during a house party. No arrests had been made as of 10 a.m. this morning, and police are continuing their investigation.

On Friday at 11:58 p.m., police responded to a disturbance in the area of 528 Hadley West Drive, an apartment complex off Lowell Avenue in the Westgate Plaza area of the city.

When officers arrived, they encountered multiple large groups of people walking in the area. Police Deputy Chief Donald Thompson said police were informed that a fight had broken out at a house party and that two people may have been stabbed.

While police were investigating, the police station was notified that two men had arrived at Merrimack Valley Hospital with multiple stab wounds. The two men were subsequently transported to a Boston hospital for treatment of their injuries, Thompson said.
