4 men stabbed during fight outside Janesville bar


JANESVILLE, Wis. (AP) -- Four men were stabbed during a fight outside a Janesville bar.

Police say they were dispatched to the downtown bar at about 1:50 a.m. Friday and found 15 people between two groups fighting.

Lt. Tim Hiers says all four men were transported to a local hospital and three have been released. One remained in the intensive care unit with non-life threatening injuries.

He tells the Beloit Daily News that police are working to piece together "multiple descriptions of what happened," given by victims, bystanders and bar employees.

He says the investigation has been complicated by the fact that most people were drinking. For instance, several victims, despite being stabbed, told police they never saw a knife.
