Two men were stabbed Friday night in separate incidents in Yokohama with a fleeing male suspect, police said.
An 45 delivery boy was stabbed in the abdomen around 19h15. while walking in the city's Minami Ward. About five minutes later, a 49 civil servant was cut off on his left arm on a road about 70 meters from where the first incident occurred.
The injuries to the two victims are not fatal, police said.
Police believe a man between 20 and 40 years ago attacked the men, who told investigators that they had never met their abuser.
