Two women cut trying to break up fight

Two women were stabbed when they tried to break up a fight in a crowd Tuesday night in the 900 block of President St., Annapolis police said. Police said they were called to Anne Arundel Medical Center, where the two women who were being treated told them that about 10:45 p.m. a fight broke out in the group between two people, one of whom drew a knife and threatened the crowd. One of the women tried to grab the person wielding the knife but was cut on the right arm. The other woman swung a pair of jeans at the person, but tripped, fell and was slashed in the left arm, police said. Both women were treated and released. The investigation is continuing.
