One man was stabbed and another was beaten early Friday morning in East Sacramento near the Capital City Freeway overpass, Sacramento police say.
Police Department spokesman Sgt. Bryce Heinlein said a single assailant is believed responsible for both assaults.
Officers responding to reports of a stabbing on the 3000 block of J Street at 5:34 a.m. found a victim they say appeared to have been in a fight with his assailant.
A second victim was located nearby underneath the Capitol City freeway overpass. He “had minor injuries as if he was been assaulted or struck,” Heinlein said.
