Two stabbings in different Long Beach neighborhoods left two men wounded early Saturday morning, authorities said. Police do not believe the incidents are related, Officer Alvino Herrera said.

In the first incident, officers were dispatched to the Poly neighborhood at the 1100 block of East Pacific Coast Highway around 3 a.m. where they found a man with non-life threatening injuries to his upper torso, Herrera said. Paramedics transported the victim to a local hospital.

“The preliminary investigation revealed the victim and suspect were involved in a fight in the area of the dispatched location and the suspect stabbed the victim with an unknown item,” said Herrera, who added that the two men did not know each other.

In the second incident, officers got a call from a local hospital about an assault with a deadly weapon at about 3:40 a.m. The victim, a man, had non-life threatening injuries to his upper torso. He told hospital staff that he was stabbed in the area of Seventh Street and Orange Avenue in North Alamitos Beach.

“Assisting officers drove to that location and were unable to locate a crime scene,” Herrera said. “The victim was uncooperative with the investigating officer and would not answer any questions about the incident.”

Police are still investigating both incidents.
