Stabbing victims arrested for assault

NASHVILLE, TN (WSMV) -

Two people were stabbed outside a home in Madison, but instead of taking the person with the knife to jail, police arrested the people who were stabbed.

Police said the real victim only used the knife in self defense during a neighborhood fight on Odette Street.

Officers said they saw three people throwing large rocks and bottles at the victim.

Police said the victim eventually pulled out the knife and cut two of his attackers on their arms to fight them off.

Police took the three suspects they witnessed throwing the rocks into custody.

The names and ages of the suspects have not been released.
