Schenectady police were investigating two separate stabbings on Friday evening.

In one incident, police said they were looking for a suspect in a stabbing at 1997 Southgate Drive, Southgate Apartments. Police said the incident stemmed from an argument at a holiday party. A man was transported to Albany Medical Center with multiple stab wounds to the torso, police said.

The suspect was still at large as of 8:15 p.m., Lt. Mark McCracken of the Schenectady Police Department said.

Police responded to an emergency call at around 7:40 p.m. and found the injured man on the scene, where he was treated. McCracken said police were still processing the crime scene after 8 p.m. Police did not release a suspect description.

In the other stabbing, which took place at about 7:04 p.m. on Hulett Street between State and Albany streets, police said a fight broke out between two men. The victim received several cuts to the face and neck area. The victim was treated on the scene by members of the Fire Department and taken to Ellis ER with non life threatening injuries. The suspect has not been indentified or located.

Police had no further details on the stabbings.
