Two teens were arrested Saturday morning after a 27-year-old man walked into Via Christi Hospital St. Joseph with cuts to his forehead and right arm, police say.

The victim told police he had been beaten and stabbed by six or seven people at about 3:30 a.m. in the 2800 block of South Ida, police Sgt. Ron Hunt said. That’s near Washington and Wassall.

Officers went to the place and found a trail of blood, which they followed to a residence. Two people there were identified as being suspects in the attack, Hunt said. They were arrested on aggravated battery charges.

The victim was later transported to Via Christi St. Francis, Hunt said.
