The Okaloosa County Sheriff’s Office is investigating two separate non-fatal stabbings.
The latest took place around 8 p.m. Sunday night on Cypress Street near Fort Walton Beach.
Deputies responded to Fort Walton Beach Medical Center in connection to the arrival of a 16-year old brought in by his mother with a stab wound to the abdomen. His mother says the victim had called and asked her to pick him up around 8 p.m. near Lovejoy Road.
Doctors say the wound is not life-threatening.
Another stabbing was reported November first near Crestview.
The 23-year old victim in that case says he had gone to a home on Chambray Road to pick up a friend when he got into an argument with another man. He says as he turned to walk away, the man stabbed him in the back with a knife. He was taken to North Okaloosa Medical Center for treatment.
Updated information on the stabbings, which are not connected, will be provided at a later time.
