The victims are from surrounding suburbs including Berowra, Hornsby and Mt Colah. They were all expected to survive, police said in a statement. Detectives have been told the older man stabbed the teens during a fight. A police spokeswoman told AAP it was still unclear if the stabbing began before or after the man was assaulted.
