Old Orchard Beach police are investigating a fight between two men who were apparently wounded with the same knife.

Police responding to a reported stabbing at the Family Dollar Store on Heath Street at 1:16 p.m. Saturday discovered a 23-year-old Lewiston man with a severe cut on a leg. But a second man – identified only as a 60-year-old resident of Milton, Massachusetts – was also found with cuts on his body.

According to a statement from the Old Orchard Beach Police Department, the initial investigation suggests the men began fighting while they were inside the Family Dollar Store. Police were unsure what sparked the altercation but believe the same knife was used to inflict the wounds on both men.

The men, whose names had not been released as of Saturday evening, were taken to different hospitals for treatment. Both were reported to be in stable condition.

No charges have been filed but the investigation continues.
