NBC Philadelphia

Three teens were stabbed, pepper-sprayed and punched while leaving a basketball game at Stamford High School last night and police are looking for the attackers.

Three teens were stabbed, pepper-sprayed and punched while leaving a basketball game at Stamford High School last night and police are looking for the attackers.

One victim, an 18-year-old man, told police that six or seven males he did not know followed him as he left the game.

As he was going through the back entrance to the football field just after 9:30 p.m., the group sprayed him with the pepper spray, attacked him and fled, police said.

The victim was transported to Stamford Hospital to be treated for a serious cut to his right arm as well as cuts and bruises to his head. His injuries are not life threatening, police said.

As officers were investigating what happened at the high school, they learned from headquarters that two other teens, one 18-year-old and one 19-year-old, had been stabbed and went to the emergency room. 

They told investigators that a group of males they did not know who attacked them as they were leaving the game, police said.

They had been sprayed with pepper spray, punched and stabbed with a small knife, police said.
  
Both victims had head and back injuries that required several stitches.

Police said the victims who went to the ER were uncooperative with officers conducting the investigation.

Anyone who witnessed the attack is asked to call the Stamford Police Detective Bureau at 203-977-4417.
