Separate altercations between friends lead to a stabbing and a wounding, respectively, in the early hours of Saturday

A card game for money and a dispute between friends both turned bloody,
and the Police are conducting investigations into these two incidents.
Reports are that a Cashew Hill man was stabbed by his friend in an altercation
that arose over the time he had arrived home. During the argument, it is
alleged, a knife was used to cut off the victim’s clothes, following which he
received the wound to the right side of his chest.
The injured man was transported by the Emergency Medical Services to the
hospital, where doctors said his injury was not life-threatening; however, he
was kept for observation.
The alleged offender was arrested on suspicion of wounding and taken to the
St. John’s Police Station.
Officers from the Criminal Investigations Department (CID) were informed of
this incident, which reportedly occurred at about 3:45 a.m. on May 18.
Meanwhile, a Buckleys Street, Green Bay, man allegedly was wounded while
engaged in a game of cards with another man. He placed a call to the Police
from the Sir Lester Bird Medical Centre, reporting the matter, at about 4 a.m.
that same morning.
When officers went to the hospital, they met the victim sitting in a wheelchair
with a bleeding wound to his left foot, which was wrapped in a towel.
Reportedly, while he and the alleged perpetrator were playing a card game for
money in the Perry Bay area, an altercation ensued, and the alleged offender
used a stone to inflict the wound. The Buckleys Street man sustained the
injury just above the ankle, which was also swollen.
The Police conducted a search for the alleged offender but without success.
