— Six teenagers told police they were all stabbed during a fight in a Rock Hill park Tuesday night.

Police responded to Armory Park on Confederate Avenue around 7:45 p.m. after receiving calls about a fight. Officers spoke with two boys, a 16-year-old and a 15-year-old. One of them had a stab wound in his right hand, while the other boy had a swollen knot above his right eye.

The teens told police they were in the park with their friends when “a bunch” of men jumped out of a green Jeep and started fighting with them, the report states.

One of the boys was stabbed by a knife he had in his pocket. The other boy said he tried to ward off their assailants, but someone “scooped him off his feet and knocked him in the eye,” the report states. The Jeep sped away before police arrived.

While talking with the teens, dispatch received word that four young men were at Piedmont Medical Center with stab wounds. The men, ages 17, 15, 18 and 19, said they were playing basketball in the park when a group of men jumped on them.

All four had cuts on their arms, hands and legs, but none of them would tell police the names of their attackers, the report states.
