HAGERSTOWN -- Two North Hagerstown High School students were taken to the hospital with stab wounds Monday afternoon after a fight at a bus stop near the Cortland Manor apartments, Hagerstown Police said.

The wounds were not life-threatening, according to Sgt. Mark Renner, who said he expected them to require stitches. The fight broke out at about 4 p.m. in a parking lot near Little Elliott Drive and Cortland Drive, Renner said.

One adult was arrested, but he was released Monday evening after investigators interviewed everyone involved and determined that the injured students were the primary aggressors in the fight, Sgt. Johnny Murray said.

No charges had been filed Monday night, but Murray said he expected all three people involved to face misdemeanor assault charges.

Two witnesses at the scene said they arrived in the parking lot and saw a man bleeding from the mouth and another man punching him. The witnesses, who did not give their names, said they let the bleeding man into their car and called police. That man was taken away in handcuffs, the witnesses said.
