Police investigate double stabbing in Peterborough

PETERBOROUGH-The Peterborough Police Service is looking for witnesses after a serious incident that occurred at approximately 11:30 pm Thursday night.

Police say emergency services located a male with apparent stab wounds near the intersection of Hunter and Water Street. Moments later emergency services located a second male with stab wounds near Aylmer and Dublin Street. Both males were taken to PRHC for treatment and have since been released.
