Two men are in hospital in Regina after apparently being slashed with machetes.
It happened early Wednesday morning in the city's North Central area, Regina police said.
Staff Sgt. Gord Pilon said people always need to be aware of their surroundings. He added, "these don't appear to be random attacks."
At 2:43 a.m. CST, Regina police were dispatched to the intersection of 5th Avenue and Rae Street where they found a 37-year-old man with what appeared to be a machete wound.
He was taken to hospital and treated for injuries police said were non-life-threatening.
At 3:36 a.m., officers were sent to the 1100 block of Robinson St. about a man at somebody's front door step ringing their door bell.
Police responded and found a man, 20, with what again appeared to be machete wounds.
He was taken to hospital where he's being treated for non-life-threatening injuries, police said.
Police said there are no suspects but they're investigating.
