Two people were stabbed early Saturday following an argument over a woman at a midtown Sacramento bar.
The incident was reported at 1:12 a.m. at Q and 21st streets. Officers arrived to find that two people had suffered what were described as serious, but not life-threatening stab wounds during a fight that began at nearby bar, said Officer Eddie Macaulay, a Sacramento Police Department spokesman.
The incident began with an argument at the bar over a woman. After the dispute turned physical, bar employees told one man to leave the establishment.
After he was ejected from the bar, the man located the two victims, both 22-year-old men, as they were walking in the area, and a fight ensued. During the struggle, the man stabbed the victims, then fled on Q Street in a vehicle. Macaulay said no weapon was recovered.
Never miss a local story.
Officers interviewed the victims at the hospital, and Macaulay said Monday that investigators have identified a person of interest but were not releasing a suspect description so as not to jeopardize the investigation.
