NBC10Philadelphia

Three people were stabbed at a family party on Fairmount Avenue Saturday night after a prank got out of hand.

Three people were stabbed at a family party on the 3600 block of Fairmount Avenue Saturday night after a prank got out of hand.

Police said the stabbing occurred around 10:55 p.m. at a gathering with several people in attendance.

During the party, a man in his early 20s smeared cake on his girlfriend’s face. Both the man and his girlfriend seemed to think the prank was funny, according to investigators.

However, the woman’s brother did not find it amusing.

According to police, the suspect took out a knife and stabbed his sister’s boyfriend. He also stabbed two other men at the party.

The three victims were transported to the hospital with non-life threatening stab wounds.

Police said one victim sustained a wound to the abdomen, another sustained wounds to the back and hand, and the third was stabbed twice in the back.

The suspect, a man in his mid-20s, was taken into custody and faces charges of assault with a deadly weapon.

No word on the condition of the victims at this point.
