Two teens stabbed during apparent drug deal, police say

Stabbing in East El Paso

A fight during a drug deal led to two teens getting stabbed Monday night, police said.

The incident happened around 11 p.m. on the 1200 block of Abigail Street near Montana Avenue and Loop 375.

When officers arrived, they found an 18-year-old man with cuts and lacerations to his upper body.

The man told police he met another man to make some type of purchase before being assaulted.

A 17-year-old boy with stab wounds was later found in the area, but he did not give officers details of what happened, police said.

Officers surveying the area said they found abandoned drugs and drug paraphernalia.

Both victims were taken to a nearby hospital, and no arrests have been made at this time.
