One person was stabbed in the leg and two were beaten by about five attackers in front of startled shoppers and restaurant diners at a major southeastern Pennsylvania mall. Police didn't immediately identify the victims, but say they are in their late teens or early 20s. They were taken to Lancaster General Hospital on Tuesday with injuries described as non-life-threatening.

Lancaster police say the three were attacked near a bank and a restaurant in Lancaster's Park City Center. Police Chief Keith Sadler says the groups had an ongoing dispute.

By the time police arrived in about ten minutes, the attackers had fled. No arrests have been made, but police say they are following leads to try to find the attackers.
