Police are investigating an overnight stabbing that left three people injured in Richfield. 

According to Richfield Police Department, officers were called to an apartment at 701 77th Street East around 1:30 a.m. when neighbors reported hearing the sound of breaking glass, possible gunshots and someone yelling for help. 

Upon arrival, police found three victims suffering from stab wounds "and/or cuts from broken glass." All three were taken to Hennepin County Medical Center for treatment of what police believed to be non-life-threatening injuries. 

Investigators say at least two men broke into the apartment and assaulted the victims, then fled on foot before police arrived.
