Norwood Police are looking for information related to a stabbing outside of McDonald's on Boston-Providence Highway early Sunday morning.
At approximately 3:52 a.m. police responded to a hold up alarm at McDonald's Restaurant, 31 Boston-Providence Highway. Before police arrived on scene they learned that the alarm was triggered because of a disturbance that included a stabbing, Norwood Police spokesman Kevin Grasso said Monday morning in an email statement.
"Reports from witnesses state that approximately 15-20 male subjects were inside the restaurant waiting to be served," Grasso said. "Two victims not associated with this group entered after. Words were exchanged. It is alleged that the victims were unhappy with the time it would take to place their order. At some point the victims went outside and a fight ensued."
During the alleged fight one male subject was stabbed with some type of sharp instrument, Grasso said, possibly a knife. Another victim was attacked and beaten by several people. The Norwood Fire Department transported the two victims to Norwood Hospital.
"The large group of males, described as possibly Cape Verdeans, left in a white party bus," Grasso said. "The interior of this bus had neon blue lighting and tinted black windows. It was last observed traveling north on Boston-Providence Highway (Rt. 1) towards Route 128."
The condition and names of the victims were not available as of Monday morning.
This is an ongoing investigation by the Norwood Police Department. Anyone with information is asked to call Detective Richard Giacoppo at 781-440-5195.
