Two people were stabbed Tuesday night following an argument over a cell phone.
Barnwell police were called to Lot B1 at the Country Park Manor around 9:12 p.m. for a fight in progress. When police arrived, they found two men with stab wounds, said Barnwell Police Chief Todd Gantt.
A 26-year-old man was stabbed at least once on the backside of his upper left shoulder area. He was airlifted to an area hospital, said Gantt.
The other victim, a 17-year-old, was transported by EMS to Southern Palmetto Hospital, formerly Barnwell County Hospital, for a "cut above the right eyebrow," he said.
Both victims were stabbed by a third individual during an argument over a cell phone, said Gantt.
No arrests have been made and the suspect's name has not been released, said Gantt, adding how the incident is still under investigation.
