Police say officers were called about 9:45 p.m. Wednesday to a report of a stabbing. Witnesses told police that two women got into a verbal argument that escalated into a physical altercation with several people becoming involved.

At some point, a third woman intervened and stabbed an 18-year-old woman in the back and neck. A 42-year-old Glenburn resident who stepped in was cut on the hand.

Officials say both victims’ injuries were non-life-threatening.

Police say the assailant was described as a white woman with a rugged appearance and shoulder-length red, curly hair.
