Four men were injured in two double stabbings on the weekend.

Police were called to the Wheelhouse Pub at 2 a.m. Saturday after a fight broke out after someone was reportedly touched inappropriately.

The skirmish spilled out into the parking lot, where a 28-year-old man was stabbed in the abdomen and a 27-year-old was sliced in the left forearm.

A 17-year-old male was arrested and a 26-year-old man is still being sought in that attack.

Then police were called to another double stabbing at 2:45 p.m. at Hazelnut Meadows Community Park, in the 14000 block of 68 Avenue.

Two men were walking through the park when they were confronted by four youth who tried to rob them. The men were unable to produce cash and were attacked.

A 61-year-old man was treated at the scene for a minor head wound from a blunt-force trauma, while a 56-year-old  was airlifted to hospital with a serious abdominal stab wound. He remains in critical condition

Two suspects, 16 and 17 years old, were arrested and are facing charges of assault causing bodily harm.

Police are still searching for the other two.
