Biddeford police are investigating the stabbing of two Portland men at 5 York Court early Sunday.

Deputy Chief JoAnne Fisk said the men, ages 24 and 26, were in Biddeford about 5 a.m. for unspecified reasons.

Police received a report of a possible stabbing and found both men suffering from stab wounds. They were taken to Southern Maine Health Care in Biddeford and then transferred to Maine Medical Center in Portland for treatment.

“I cannot comment on more specific types of injury, specific weapons or what their current health status is,” Fisk said in a news release Sunday afternoon.

Fisk didn’t release the names of the men. She said witnesses were being uncooperative and detectives were trying to interview the two men at Maine Med on Sunday afternoon.

“We do not believe there is a threat to the public,” she said.

Police reportedly taped off multiple buildings on Elm Street on Sunday morning, including a Papa John’s Pizza restaurant at 222 Elm St., which is about a block from York Court. Papa John’s employees told WCSH-TV that they found blood on a window when they arrived for their shift late Sunday morning and saw a blood trail on sidewalks nearby.

Fisk had no new information Sunday evening. She said she would release further details as the investigation continues.
