Durham Police responded to two stabbings early this morning in Oshawa that sent two victims to hospital.

Officers were called to the Simcoe Street and Olive Avenue area just after one a.m. for a report of a man who had been assaulted.

The officers were able to locate the victim, who was suffering from injuries to his face.

The victim had been walking southbound on Simcoe when a male suspect, who was riding a bike, and a female walked past him. The male suspect got off his bike and punched the victim in the face, police say. The victim fell to the ground and when he tried to get up he was again hit in the face.

The suspects both fled the scene.

Upon arriving home, the victim realized he had been stabbed and began walking to the hospital for treatment when he stopped a passerby for assistance. The victim, 43, suffered non-life-threatening injuries and was transported to a local hospital for treatment.

The male suspect is described as white, in his 20s, 6′ tall, with a slender build and was riding a BMX bicycle.

Just ten minutes before this incident a 30 year-old man was taken to hospital after being stabbed on Metcalfe Street, on the north side of Memorial Park in the city’s downtown.

Police were called to the scene for a report of a fight. Officers arrived and found the victim suffering from injuries after being stabbed. The victim suffered non life- threatening injuries and was transported to a trauma centre in Toronto.
The suspects fled the scene prior to the arrival of police.

Suspect #1 is described as male, white, 25-30 years, with a shaved head.

Suspect #2 is described as male, white, slender build with brown hair.

Anyone who may have information about either of these incidents is asked to contact D/Cst. Bowler of the Central East Division Criminal Investigations Bureau at 1-888-579-1520 ext. 2739.
