A report of a stabbing came in just after 1 a.m. Officers first responded to Southwest 4th Avenue and Southwest Oak Street, but then found the victim at Southwest Naito Parkway and Southwest Harvey Milk Street. 

The injured woman had a stab wound and was sent to a local hospital via ambulance. Her injuries are believed to be non-life threatening.

Two suspects — identified as 30-year-old Melissa Sheridan and 32-year-old Dorian Rhodes — were found nearby. Once officers detained Sheridan and Rhodes, they confiscated a knife believed to have been used in the stabbing.

The suspects now face charges of assault in the second degree.
