Police say one woman, approximately 30 to 40 years old, was stabbed with a sharp object and had head and abdomen injuries.

EMS took that victim to Foothills hospital in life-threatening condition.

Another woman, also about 30 to 40 years old, was taken to Peter Lougheed Centre with non-life-threatening injuries.

Police say a third woman was also hurt, but their injuries were minor.
