UPDATED 09.02.14 AT 2 P.M.:

Two men were stabbed late Friday as they were leaving a house party in Alhambra, according to police.

The victims were allegedly leaving the party on the 3200 block of West Montezuma Avenue when two male suspects approached and physically attacked them, said Sgt. Jerry Johnson of the Alhambra Police Department. The victims did not realize they had been stabbed until reaching their car, and a friend drove them to a DUI checkpoint at Fremont Avenue and Orange Street for help, Johnson said.

One victim was stabbed in the upper back while the other was stabbed in the lower abdomen, according to Johnson. Both victims were taken to Huntington Memorial Hospital for non life-threatening injuries. Police have not identified a weapon, which could be a screwdriver, knife, or other sharp instrument.

The suspects fled the party before police arrived, Johnson said. This incident is still under investigation.
