PROVIDENCE — Police are investigating after two people were stabbed in the Graduate hotel.
Cmdr. Thomas Verdi said police went to the hotel at about 12:45 a.m. Sunday and found two stabbing victims inside Room 842, along with several other people.
Verdi said a small birthday party was taking place and an argument had broken out. One male at the party called or texted friends, and a short time later there was a knock on the door. When the door was opened several male subjects rushed into the room, and two men, 19 and 20 years old, were stabbed in their midsections.
The two men who were stabbed were taken to Rhode Island Hospital and are in stable condition, Verdi said.
The assailants fled before the police arrived, Verdi said.
