JUNEAU - Two men have been arrested for their involvement in a knife fight that injured four people, according to police.

Johnathan Jackson, 27, suffered stab wounds to the head and shoulders and Terry Stansell, 26, also had been stabbed in the head, according to police.

The investigation revealed that two other men, ages 25 and 21 years old, had been involved in the fight. Both suffered stab wounds to the arms and abdomen. Police reported the 25-year-old man had "defensive stab wounds" to his right wrist. Their names were not released.
