Two early stabbings sent two people to the hospital early Monday.

One stabbing happened just after 4 a.m. on the northern edge of Liberty City. Another one happened 90 minutes later in East Little Havana.

Miami Fire Rescue Capt. Ignatius Carroll says paramedics took one stabbing victim to Ryder Trauma Center at Jackson Memorial Hospital from the 800 block of Northwest 70th St. around 4:10 a.m.

At around 5:45 a.m., Miami police arrived at a home in the 600 block of Southwest First Street to find a man with a stab wound to the back and a hand laceration. He was in stable condition, Miami police said, when paramedics tended to him.

Anyone with information on the stabbings can contact Miami police at 305-603-6940 or 6350; or Crime Stoppers at 305-471-TIPS (8477).
