Thunder Bay Police are investigating two stabbings in the city's south core area that may be related.

Just after 3:30 a.m. Wednesday, a man was found stabbed in an apartment in the former Odd Fellows building on May Street.

He was sent to hospital with non-life-threatening injuries in the chest area.

About 10 minutes later — and within a few blocks of the first stabbing — police were called to a family home where children were woken by someone entering the back of their house.

Police report a second man in his mid-20s was found bleeding in the bathroom. He was also sent to hospital with non-life-threatening injuries to his neck and head.

Police are looking into whether the stabbings may have stemmed from an altercation between the two men.
