The Harford County Sheriff's Office and Aberdeen Police Department are investigating two stabbings reported in Edgewood and Aberdeen in recent days.

In Aberdeen, a man was found stabbed at Exxon gas station, in the first block of North Philadelphia Boulevard, at about 9:30 p.m. Sunday, according to a city police press release.

Officers responded to a disturbance and found Vincelah L. Hayes, 41, of the first block of Franklin Street, suffering from several stab wounds, according to the release.

"Hayes became involved in an alteration with two subjects over a female; during the fight Hayes was stabbed several times in the back," the release said.

He was treated at the scene by paramedics from the Aberdeen Fire Department and taken to Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center in Baltimore with non-life-threatening injuries. He was expected to be released Monday.

Two suspects have been identified and criminal charges are pending.

A man was also stabbed in an apparent domestic incident at 12:29 a.m. on Sunday in the 800 block of Olive Branch Court in Edgewood, the Harford County Sheriff's Office reported.

Deputies made contact with the victim at Upper Chesapeake Medical Center, Sheriff's Office spokeswoman Christie Kahler said via e-mail.

The man had a "large cut on his left forearm that appeared to have been caused by a sharp object," possibly a knife, she said.

The suspect is a man whom the victim found in the house with the victim's wife, Kahler said. The victim "told the suspect to get out of the house and proceeded down steps to [the] front door."

The two men fought, after which the suspect fled the scene and the victim realized his arm was bleeding.

The victim did not see the weapon. The suspect is described as a black man, about 22 years old, 6 feet 3 inches tall; he was wearing a black T-shirt, blue jeans and do-rag under a baseball cap, Kahler said.

No further details were available.
