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 stab wounds during a fight.

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

The east district crime unit is currently investigating the incident and no more details are known.

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 after an argument that escalated to a stabbing Saturday.

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

The pair began fighting before one of them pulled out a knife and stabbed a 26-year-old man before fleeing and 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 and was remanded in custody.
