Two men were stabbed in the heart of Downtown Crossing in Boston early Saturday morning, leaving one with critical injuries, police said.
Around 2:28 a.m., officers responded to a call for a person stabbed near 1 Summer St., where they found the men with stab wounds, said Maisha Miraj, a spokeswoman for Boston police. The stabbings apparently occurred as the result of a fight among a group, Miraj said.
Both were taken to area hospitals, one of them with life-threatening injuries, Miraj said. She described the more seriously injured man’s condition as “critical but stable,’’ while the other man received a non-life-threatening injury.
