One person is in critical condition after a stabbing that the Harford County Sheriff's Office reports was one of two stabbings Thursday night and Friday morning in Edgewood. Officials said it was not known whether the two crimes were related.

In the first incident, deputies responded to the 500 block of Candlewood Drive at 11:45 p.m. on Thursday for a reported assault and found a man stabbed in the back, according to the report from the sheriff's office.

Approximately one hour later, the sheriff's office was called to another stabbing incident, approximately two miles away. Deputies responded to the 1800 block of Grempler Way at 12:54 a.m. on Friday after a person was reportedly sitting on the steps of a townhouse, bleeding, police said.

Deputies found a 44-year-old stabbed in the abdomen, the sheriff's office said. The man lived in the vicinity, according to the report.

Joppa-Magnolia paramedics treated the victim at the scene before he was flown by Medevac to the University of Maryland Shock Trauma Center, where he was listed in critical condition, the sheriff's office reported.

The victim was unable to provide any information about the suspects, police said.

The case remains under investigation, according to the report.
