Two people were stabbed two hours apart in apparently unrelated incidents Friday night, according to Manteca Police.

The first occurred at about 7:30 p.m. when the victim and his girlfriend ran out of gas.  They reportedly hopped onto a quad and drove to a gas station convenience store in the 800 block of North Main Street from their Lode Street home.  An ex-boyfriend allegedly rammed their quad with his vehicle.   The victim jumped clear of the quad as two men chased him on foot, police said.

Officers said he was stabbed in the upper arm and chest area when the assailants caught up with him, but he refused to be transported to the hospital by medics.

One of the suspects was believed to be from Lathrop.

In the second stabbing incident two hours later in the 1800 block of North Main Street, the victim was a 26-year-old male who was transported to San Joaquin County Hospital in French Camp.

Police said the victim had been arguing with a female roommate when her family members came to their residence. A heated argument ensued, culminating with him being stabbed twice.
