THREE men suffered knife wounds following a street brawl in Ravensthorpe on Wednesday afternoon.
Police were called to the incident on Church Street at around 3.50pm after a fight broke out between a group of men who police believe knew each other.
A 24-year-old man was taken to hospital for treatment, while an 18-year-old was later discharged from hospital and a 23-year-old refused medical treatment.
It is believed that several vehicles were damaged, with at least one car being rammed into two others.
