Rochester Police say four men were stabbed following fights at the Lilac Festival Saturday night.

Police say the first stabbing happened on South Avenue near Robinson Drive around 7:15 p.m.

Police say that man was stabbed in the torso and taken to Strong Memorial Hospital with non-life threatening injuries. At this time, police say, the suspect in that stabbing is not under arrest and the attack may be related to the other fights at the festival on Saturday.

Later on that night, police say three more men were stabbed on South Avenue near Hamilton Street. A 17-year-old boy, a 35-year-old man and a 36-year-old man were all stabbed in the torso around 10:30 p.m. Investigators say all three suffered non-life threatening injuries and were taken to Strong Memorial Hospital for treatment.

Police are still looking for the suspect in that stabbing as well and say all three men were also at the festival earlier in the night.
