Two women and a man were hospitalized, two with serious injuries. Police say the motives are unclear.

Three people are hospitalized, at least two with serious injuries, following a triple-stabbing early Saturday outside a Minneapolis fast-food restaurant.

Minneapolis police Sgt. Bill Palmer said the incident occurred at 2:48 a.m. in front of the Taco Bell at 215 E. Lake Street, near the intersection of 3rd Avenue S. and E. Lake Street.

Emergency responders arrived to find three victims lying in the street. A 26-year-old man and a 40-year-old woman were stabbed in the chest, and a 24-year-old woman was stabbed in the arm.

All three were taken to Hennepin County Medical Center, where their conditions were unknown. The two stabbed in the chest were seriously injured, Palmer said.

Witnesses described the suspects in the stabbing as a man and a woman of unknown age or description.

Palmer said the reasons for the stabbings remained unclear, but robbery does not appear to be a motive.
