OKLAHOMA CITY -- Two suspects are in police custody after a stabbing on the city's northwest side.

The crime kept police busy throughout the early evening on Friday.

Around 4:30 p.m., police were called to a neighborhood near N.W. 32nd and Drexel in response to a stabbing. That's when they say multiple suspects rammed into a police cruiser and other vehicles in an attempt to run away.

Two mangled vehicles blocked traffic on N.W. 32nd Street on Friday.

"I came out here and seen (sic) it," said a neighbor. " I seen (sic) 2-dozen cops sitting out here."

Neighbors say they heard a loud crash. Minutes later, the police arrived.

"As they responded, multiple suspects attempted to leave the area," said Oklahoma City Police Sgt. John Stacey.

Police said one person was stabbed in the 3100 block of N.W. 32nd street. They would not give any information on a possible motive. The victim was transported to a local hospital. Police said the injuries are not life threatening.

At least one cruiser was hit during the attempted escape. No officers were hurt in the crash.

Two suspects are now facing charges in connection with the stabbing in addition to assault with a deadly weapon on a police officer.

"I'm happy it wasn't my truck," said one neighbor as he looked at the damaged vehicles on his block.

The stabbing victim was still in an area hospital as of late Friday.
