A popular seafood restaurant in Baltimore was the site of a bloody scene late last night when four men were stabbed. News station WMAR says the incident began when "a man sexually assaulted a woman on the second level of the restaurant." After an employee confronted the alleged attacker, police say "the suspect pulled out a knife and started attacking employees and patrons."

The victims were all in their 20s; the woman was hit in the face, while the men sustained slashes to various body parts from the hands to the neck and torso. Per the Baltimore Sun, all "were transported to an area hospital for treatment of injuries considered to be non-life-threatening."

Police have not yet made any arrests. Staff on duty at the restaurant today told Eater they were not working at the time of the incident and could not comment on the situation.

Jimmy's opened in 1974 and has been featured on Food Network's Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives. Several Yelp reviews of the restaurant, while raving about the food, note that it's located in an undesirable neighborhood.

It's certainly not the first time someone's been stabbed in a restaurant, although an altercation involving this many people seems unusual. In a fatal turn of events, a man was stabbed to death at by an underage drinker at a California TGI Friday's in 2009.
