An ABC-7 crew watched a man being taken into custody at the scene of the incident.

Witnesses told ABC-7 that there was a crowd of people gathered outside of the Opportunity Center, leading to a fight breaking out. They say this is when they believe the stabbing happened. 

Police say the two people stabbed were taken to the hospital.
