NET Staff Report • Jul 18, 2012 at 10:16 AM

Two people were being treated for stab wounds they received in separate attacks late Tuesday night.

Johnson City police were called to 510 Lamont St., Apt. 4, around 10:30 p.m. Tuesday for the first stabbing but were told on the way that another person had been stabbed near Hillcrest Drive and Hamilton Street.

The man at the Lamont apartment, who was not clearly identified in a police report describing the incidents, told police he armed himself with a knife to answer his door because he was unfamiliar with the person who knocked. When he answered the door a man wearing a black ski mask pointed a rifle at him and demanded valuables, according to the report.
