A man was shot in the stomach and another man was repeatedly stabbed in the upper body in separate, unrelated attacks Friday night and early Saturday in East and Northeast Baltimore, according to city police.

The shooting occurred at about 11:30 p.m. near East Monument and North Curley streets in East Baltimore. Police said the victim, described only as a male in his 20s, was taken in a private car to a nearby hospital emergency room.

Police said the stabbing occurred about 2:40 a.m. in the 1300 block of Crofton Road in Northeast Baltimore. It's a residential neighborhood just north of East Cold Spring Lane, between The Alameda and Loch Raven Boulevard.

A statement from Baltimore police said the adult male victim had been attacked during an altercation, but provided no other details. Police said the man was wounded in the upper body and was taken by ambulance to a hospital.

Police said detectives have not made arrests in either incident. The conditions of the victims were not available Saturday morning, but police said the injuries to both men did not appear to be life-threatening.
