AUGUSTA — Police are investigating an apparent double stabbing in which two men both ended up with stab wounds that were not life threatening.

Police said the men, whose names haven’t been made public, aren’t fully cooperating in describing how they were wounded.

One of the men was taken to MaineGeneral Medical Center in Augusta for treatment while the other refused treatment against medical advice at the scene.

The stabbings appear “to be a mutual assault” between the two men, according to Sgt. Eric Lloyd.

Police were called to 4 Stewart Lane by a neighbor at 2:30 a.m. Sunday, who reported a man had been stabbed.

Police found one man with a stab wound to his right triceps and the other with one to his chest.

The investigation remains open, no charges have been filed and police declined to identify the two men.

Lloyd said police have received “minimal cooperation” from the victims in trying to determine what happened.
