Toronto police have dealt with two incidents involving knives in the city this weekend.

On Saturday afternoon, Toronto police arrested three people after a knife fight in Kensington Market.

Police at 14 Division said officers were called to an army surplus store in the market. They drew their guns before making the arrests.

Several of the men were known to police. It's not yet known what charges, if any, will be laid.

Meanwhile, five people are in hospital after a series of stabbings near Ossington Avenue and Dundas Street at about 2 a.m.

Detectives are looking for witnesses in that case. So far the victims and witnesses have not cooperated with the investigation, police say.
