Police Chief Mike Dickey said the incident appears to be an “altercation between two groups.”

Six people — whose identities have not been released — were treated at area hospitals for stab or slash wounds sustained. Police say the severity of the injuries are unknown, but no fatalities have been reported.

Investigators have not talked with any of the stabbing victims, but Dickey said the incident appears to be isolated to the two groups of people involved.

“There is no public safety issue,” he said.
