MANHATTAN — At least four men were injured, including some stabbed, in a group brawl Monday night in Midtown Manhattan according to police.

A fight near Port Authority on Nov. 25 involved "sticks and knives," police said.

The melee broke out near the corner of 41st Street and Eighth Avenue, across from Port Authority, just before 9:30 p.m. Police described it as a "fight with sticks and knives."

Authorities said three or four men were initially involved in a dispute that escalated, leading to multiple people being stabbed in the arm, hand and buttocks.

According to police, all injuries are non-fatal and all those involved are in police custody at Bellevue Hospital.

Police said those involved and injured are men from New York, between late 20s and early 30s, and that they are all known to each other in one way or another.
