    Bristol police are investigating an incident that resulted in two men with knife wounds.

    Officers responded to Bristol Hospital at 3:32 a.m. after receiving a report that two men were in the emergency room with stab wounds.

    One of the men, a 31-year-old, had cuts on his arm and refused treatment, leaving before police arrived. Police said that the second man, a 20-year-old, was "very uncooperative" with officers  and that he had a one-inch cut near the corner of his mouth "that required sutures."

    The second man did tell police at the hospital that "he and his associate" were in an apartment complex parking lot near Surrey Drive and Bianca Road in Bristol when "there was a disturbance with a car load of people and a black male slashed them with a weapon believed to be a box cutter," Bristol police said in a news release. But police said that he was vague about the altercation.

    Police have not located witnesses or confirmed the scene of the reported fight at this time and continue to investigate.

    More information will be provided when it becomes available.
