CAMBRIDGE, MASS. (WHDH) - Police in Cambridge are looking to identify suspects involved in a pair of stabbings that left two victims seriously injured Sunday night.

The police department said officers were first alerted around 8 p.m. and found the pair of men in their 20s in the McElroy Park area. According to Cambridge Police, the two victims were likely together and stabbed following an altercation with a group of two or three men. Police think one of the victims was trying to intervene and stop the suspect(s) from stabbing the other victim.

Officials said two male suspects possibly involved in the stabbings were last seen running toward River Street after the incident.

One victim was found in the area of 750 Mass. Ave. and the other was near the park. Both victims were taken to hospitals. One is now stable, while the other remains in critical condition. The latter victim had previously been discharged from a hospital late Sunday morning after he arrived at a Cambridge hospital with stab wounds from a different incident.

Although the victim didn’t cooperate with police when they arrived to the hospital around 4:40 a.m. Sunday, officers later found evidence of a stabbing in Central Square after an apparent fight. The victim was released from the hospital after the first stabbing and was later stabbed again.

No arrests have yet been made, and Cambridge Police detectives are now seeking any witnesses with information on the stabbings.

The department asks that anyone with related info contact police at 617-349-3300
