Two men stabbed minutes apart in Southeast Washington

Two men were stabbed — one in a carjacking — in separate but apparently unrelated attacks that occurred four minutes apart Wednesday morning in Southeast Washington, according to D.C. police.

The first incident occurred about 7:40 a.m. in the 3000 block of Stanton Road. Police said a man was stabbed in the stomach and was taken to an area hospital. He was reported conscious and breathing, with non life-threatening injuries.

About 7:44 a.m., police said a man had his 2012 Toyota Corolla stolen at gunpoint from the 4100 block of 4th St. SE, about 2 1/2 miles from the earlier stabbing scene; police do not believe the incidents are related.

Police spokesman Officer Araz Alali said the driver of the Toyota was stabbed in the shoulder during the carjacking. The vehicle was last seen being driven toward Southern Avenue, at the Maryland line. It has a Virginia license plate WWR-4493.

Police had only scant descriptions of the assailants.
