Two young men were stabbed Sunday afternoon at 6412 Edgmon Drive, receiving what the Chattanooga Police Department said were nonlife-threatening injuries.

The police department said several parties had gone to the address to collect a debt and a physical altercation had occurred.

That's when a woman produced a knife in self-defense and wounded the two victims, the police department said.

The victims were taken to a local hospital, but the parties refused to cooperate with the investigation, a news release said.
