Two Oak Ridge men were taken by ambulance to a hospital after a stabbing was reported on Monday night, authorities said.
The Oak Ridge Police Department responded to a reported disturbance in the Scarboro neighborhood at about 11:30 p.m. Monday. Roughly 20 people were reported to be in the street on South Benedict Avenue near the intersection with South Dillard Avenue, and some were allegedly intoxicated, the ORPD said in a press release.
When officers arrived, they found Kevin Steen, 48, of Oak Ridge, lying in the street with multiple contusions to the head and face, the press release said.
A second subject reportedly had been stabbed and left the scene.
A few minutes later, officers located Eddie Mitchell, 32, of Oak Ridge, a short distance away at Hallmark Apartments with several stab wounds, the release said.
Both men were transported by ambulance to the University of Tennessee Medical Center in Knoxville for treatment, the Police Department said.
“The investigation remains ongoing; it has not been determined at this time what charges, if any, will be filed in connection with this incident,” the ORPD said. “No further information will be released at this time.”
