MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- Five people were stabbed after a fight broke out in Clark Square Park Monday night. The victims included a pregnant woman and one of the victims is just 13 years old.

Investigators say the incident started as a fight between a group of teenagers. One of the teens returned with their parents around 6:30. Police say that's when the fight started. According to witnesses, the parents approached a large group of teenagers and things got heated. In the end, five people were stabbed, four between the ages of 13 and 17 and a 33-year-old pregnant woman. 

Parents say a few bad apples at the park are ruining it for everyone and taking away their peace. 

"The police have been patrolling this neighborhood on foot and it's at the one time that they wasn't here that just really shocked me," says Brandon Robinson, whose daughter was playing at the park. 

"It was kind of sad because there was people running with their children just crying because they were just panicked," says Jonathan Castillo who witnessed the whole thing. 

Two suspects, a 33-year-old woman and a 32-year-old man are in custody.
