The victim has minor injuries, according to authorities.

Police were called to the intersection of Palm and Acacia Avenues just after 3:05 a.m. in regards to a stabbing call.

The victim (no gender or age was released) was taken to a hospital for treatment of what Hemet Police Sgt. Glen Brock described as non-life threatening injuries.
