Posted: Updated:

Two men were taken to the hospital Wednesday afternoon after an officer in downtown Morgantown noticed they had been stabbed. 

A citizen flagged down an officer and reported that two men were covered in blood and bleeding from their heads at approximately 4:30 p.m., according to the Morgantown Police Department. The caller told police that the men had asked her not to call for help.

The officer found the men, who were clearly injured, walking near Prospect Street, and one of the men told the officer they had been stabbed. West Virginia University Police, along with EMS and fire personnel, were called to the scene, and the men were taken to Ruby Memorial Hospital and treated for their injuries. Neither man suffered life-threatening injuries in the incident.

After further investigation, police were able to determine that the incident started inside of a fraternity house at 660 North High Street, and a search warrant for the property was obtained. Authorities were on scene until approximately 11 p.m., according to police.

Police said the two men who were stabbed were uncooperative with officers, and one man was found to be in possession of a pocket full of marijuana.

Witnesses and suspects have been interviewed regarding this incident, and the investigation is ongoing. Anyone with information is asked to contact the Morgantown Police Department's Detective Unit at 304-284-7522.
