Officers responded to the area of 4th Street and Pennsylvania around 10 a.m. after a call for an assault. Two male victims were found with stab wounds at the scene. Both men were conscious and breathing when they were transported to a nearby hospital.
FOX 5's Paul Wagner reports that one of the victims was at the gas station when he was approached by the suspect and stabbed in the neck. The second victim was stabbed in the chest. The suspect then fled the gas station and was apprehended by police a short distance away.
