Before the stabbing, the three teenagers and five other people followed guests into the IStay River City hotel shortly before 9.20pm on January 26. 

After getting into the building, the group of eight entered a room that was being occupied by a man, who was known to them. 

However, a fight broke out and the three teenagers were stabbed with Mr Alexanderson suffering the most serious wound in the chest. 

On the night of the stabbing, Inspector John Kent told 9News there were two crime scenes.

'It appears that one of the higher floors is where the initial incident may have occurred. The victims have been made their way down to another floor, and then further out into the street,' he said. 

Police are investigating the incident.
