A stabbing in Echuca last night left four people injured, with two people taken to Echuca hospital for treatment.

Police said the incident happened about 11.30pm at an address on the Northern Hwy.

An Echuca man, 40, received a stab wound to his shoulder area, and a 50-year-old Echuca man received a forehead injury inflicted by an iron bar.

Both were taken to Echuca hospital.

Another Echuca man, 41, received a cut to his forearm and a black eye and a woman, 42, from Echuca, received a knife wound to her finger.

Police said while officers were at the scene, another man attempted to interfere with police inquires and subsequently threw a cricket ball at police.

The ball missed the police officers but hit the police car, smashing a window.

At this stage police do not know what the dispute was over, and though no charges have yet been laid, charges are expected to follow.

Echuca Criminal Investigation Unit are handling inquiries.
