Two people were stabbed in separate incidents in the city early Sunday.

Winnipeg police said a 26-year-old man was found at a residence in the 100 block of Allenby Crescent at about 4:15 a.m., suffering from stab wounds.

Police said the man was rushed to hospital in critical condition, but has since been upgraded to stable.

About an hour later, at 5:30 a.m., police rushed to the 500 block of William Avenue after a 49-year-old man was stabbed. He was rushed to hospital in unstable condition and the investigation is continuing.

Meanwhile, a man has been charged with aggravated assault following a verbal dispute that escalated to a stabbing on Saturday.

Police said two men who knew each other were sitting at a bus stop around Main Street and Logan Avenue at 3:30 p.m., when they began arguing.

The pair began physically fighting before one of the men pulled out a knife and stabbed a 26-year-old man.

Police said he fled by jumping on a bus. Police arrested a man on a bus near Main Street and Bannatyne Avenue.

Muorater Masher, 24, has been charged with aggravated assault and possession of a weapon. He was remanded in custody.
