Carmacks RCMP had their hands full Saturday morning.

Police received a distress call at about 8 a.m. from a local residence, where they found a man lying in a pool of blood.

He was taken to the community health centre and later transferred to Whitehorse General Hospital.

“It appears the individual suffered from a deep wound to his side,” the RCMP release said. “Despite a major loss of blood, the individual’s life is no longer in danger.

“To date, no charges have been laid and the matter remains under investigation.”

Police found a second wounded man about an hour later at another residence.

He had a cut on his face and was clutching his side, say police . RCMP did not say whether the two incidents were related.

The second individual was also treated in Carmacks before being transferred to Whitehorse.

“It appears the individual sustained injuries as a result of an assault,” said the release. “To date, no charges have been laid and the matter remains under investigation.”
