SAYREVILLE — A 21-year-old Parlin resident and a 22-year-old Cliffwood resident suffered non-life-threatening injuries when they were stabbed with a knife at a bar early Wednesday morning, authorities said.
Police responded to an emergency call at Big Shots bar on Route 35 South at 12:55 a.m. The victims told officers that they had been stabbed during a fight that started after three men who had become unruly were asked to leave, according to Detective Sgt. David Lasko.
After one of the three men threw his drink at a waitress, a 41-year-old Sayreville resident, several patrons attempted to escort the three men from the premises, authorities said.
A brawl then broke out, and one of the three men allegedly displayed a knife and then stabbed the Cliffwood resident in the upper back and the Parlin resident in the right side of the head, police said.
One suspect fled south on Route 35 in a green Mitsubishi while the other suspects fled on foot, according to police.
Both victims, who were not identified by police, were taken to Raritan Bay Medical Center in Perth Amboy for treatment, authorities said.
