Three males had been stabbed in a brawl outdoors a Co Antrim pub.
It occurred within the Important Avenue space of Ballycarry at 1am on Saturday.
The victims, two of their 30s and one in his 60s, had been taken to hospital with their accidents described as not life-threatening.
A 31-year-old man and a lady (27) had been arrested on suspicion of various offences together with tried homicide.
They continue to be in police custody. The highway was closed to permit for police investigations.
Mid and East Antrim Borough councillor Mark McKinty, who grew up within the village, stated the incident had shocked the area people.
“Before everything, I ship my greatest needs for a speedy restoration to the three injured events, all of whom I do know properly,” he added.
“Honest thanks should go to the PSNI who had been on the scene in a short time, probably stopping additional damage or a fatality. I might encourage anybody with any data to talk to the police and help with their investigation.
“Ballycarry is a small and peaceable group which is understandably shaken at present, and I do know the entire village will rally round these people and companies affected.”
Police are asking anybody with data to name investigators on 101 or present nameless data to Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
