Police reported three men were stabbed early Tuesday morning in Huntsville.

The stabbings happened at Tent City under I-565, near Hall Street and Derrick Avenue, sometime before 3 a.m.

One of the victims told officers that he was sleeping inside of his tent when an unknown person crawled inside of the tent and cut him with a knife. When the victim yelled for help, he said the two other men grabbed the attacker and pulled him back. Police said the attacker then cut the two other victims and left the scene.

When officers arrived, they said they found two of the victims with stab wounds to their midsections. Police said another call led them to the third stabbing victim, who was nearby at Mason Court and had multiple stab wounds to his midsection as well.

All three victims were taken to Huntsville Hospital for serious but non-life threatening injuries. This case is still under investigation.
