FAIRFIELD — Police are investigating what they suspect was a gang-related fight late Friday that left three people injured.
Officers responded to the 1700 block of Fillmore Street about 10:45 p.m. for a report of a stabbing.
Three adult male victims were stabbed. A 22-year-old Fairfield resident had injuries to his hands, an 18-year-old Fairfield resident had two stab wounds to his back, and a 22-year-old Suisun City resident had a stab wound to his groin. All three victims were treated at NorthBay Medical Center for injuries that were not considered life-threatening, according to police.
Police said the assault started when a group of 10 or more people confronted the victims outside on Fillmore Street.
The two groups allegedly exchanged insults and gang slogans before a physical fight began. Police approached the scene and the attackers fled on foot in different directions. Police checked the area check for the suspects, without success. Victims said the group consisted of Hispanic males and females, according to police.
Anyone with information about the case is asked to call the Fairfield Police Department’s Gang Unit at 428-7600.
