Two teens stabbed during Azusa brawl

AZUSA — Two teenage boys were stabbed and two men were injured during a large brawl between two groups of partygoers Saturday, police said.
Police responded to reports of a large fight shortly after 10 p.m. in the 500 block of N. Barbara Avenue, Azusa police Sgt. Andy Sutcliffe said in a written statement.
“As officers arrived they saw roughly 15 subjects fighting in the middle of the street,” the statement said.
The brawlers scattered when police arrived, and officers found two teenagers who had been stabbed in the torso, Sgt. John Madaloni said.
Two injured men were also found at the scene, officials said. One had a cut to his head from being struck with an object, and another complained of pain from being struck repeatedly.
All four injured people were hospitalized and expected to survive, Sutcliffe said.
The fight was apparently between two groups of people attending two house parties that were “more or less across the street from each other,” Madaloni said.
A knife was recovered from the scene, he added, however no arrests had been made Sunday. The victims did not appear to be cooperating with investigators.
It was not clear what the groups were fighting over, and no further details were available Sunday.
Police are seeking witnesses to the fight, and anyone with information is asked to call the Azusa Police Department.
