Two people were hurt in separate stabbings in Harlem Saturday evening, police said.
A man was stabbed by another man who came up from behind him on West 111th Street, near Lenox Avenue, around 5:15 p.m., police said. The victim was taken to St. Luke’s Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.
Police said about two hours later on West 116th Street, less than ten blocks away at Eighth Avenue, a man was stabbed twice in the torso. He was also taken to St. Luke’s Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.
Motives behind the stabbings aren’t known, and it’s unclear in both instances if the victims knew their attackers. Police were investigating Saturday night.
