Two stabbing victims who were injured in separate incidents this weekend didn’t know why or even where they were attacked, Wichita police said Sunday.

“Neither one had a story about what happened,” Sgt. Scott Brunow said.

A 27-year-old man showed up about 12:30 a.m. Sunday at Wesley Medical Center with stab wounds to his left arm and hand. He later told police he was stabbed when he got in a fight with another man sometime Friday night, Brunow said.

He didn’t go to the hospital until he realized late Saturday night that his left arm and hand were numb, Brunow said. His condition isn’t known.

In the other incident, a man called 911 about 7:45 p.m. Saturday and said there was a man bleeding on the North Seneca bridge east of Museum Boulevard, Bruno said. Police found a 51-year-old man bleeding from two stab wounds in his chest and a 50-year-old man giving him aid.

The 51-year-old was taken to Via Christi Hospital on St. Francis in critical condition, Brunow said.

Police said they aren’t sure if the man was stabbed on the bridge or somewhere else.

Authorities are still investigating both incidents.
