Police are searching for suspects after two men were assaulted at a birthday party in New Bedford early Sunday morning.

The first victim arrived at the party to pick up his girlfriend around 3 a.m. when a fight broke out between the two. A short time later, two unidentified men attacked the victim in his vehicle.

The victim escaped and drove to the south end station, hitting a car on Division Street along the way. He endured stab wounds to both his back and wrist as well as lacerations to his head.

The second attack came from the same birthday party where a Fall River man was stabbed in the abdomen.

Both men were brought to Rhode Island Hospital. Alcohol is believed to be a factor in the incident.
