Police investigate birthday party stabbings

By: Haley Costello


Police are searching for suspects after two men were assaulted
at a birthday party in New Bedford
early Sunday morning.

The first victim arrived at the party to pick up his
girlfriend around 3 a.m. when a fight broke out between the two. A short time
later, two unidentified men attacked the victim in his vehicle.

The victim escaped and drove to the south end station, hitting a
car on Division Street
along the way. He endured stab wounds to both his back and wrist as well as
lacerations to his head.

The second attack came from the same birthday party where a Fall River man was
stabbed in the abdomen.

Both men were brought to Rhode Island Hospital.
Alcohol is believed to be a factor in the incident.
