Two men were stabbed early Sunday morning during a street robbery in D.C.’s Bloomingdale neighborhood, police said.

A group of five was approached by three men; one suspect wielded a knife, another had a pole, said Officer Anthony Clay, a police spokesman.

One victim was stabbed in the chest, neck and back, while another was stabbed in the wrist. The others were punched. The injuries do not appear life-threatening, Clay said.

The incident happened around 2 a.m. in the 100 block of V Street NW, in a residential neighborhood of rowhouses east of Howard University.

The three suspects are black males, Clay said. The knife-wielding man is described as 5-foot-7 and about 140 pounds, wearing dark pants. The man with a pole is said to be 5-foot-8, about 140 pounds and wearing a white T-shirt.

Police reported seven other violent incidents Saturday night and Sunday morning, including a stabbing in the 1800 block of Independence Avenue SE, near RFK Stadium, and a gun robbery in the 1900 block of Calvert Street NW, near the Adams Morgan nightlife district.
