Three teens were hurt in two overnight stabbings in the city, according to police.

Rochester Police say the first stabbing happened around 10:50 p.m. in the area of Lyell Avenue near Saratoga Avenue.

Officers were called to that area for a report of a man stabbed during a fight. When they arrived, they found two 19-year-old men had been stabbed in the torso. They were taken by ambulance to Strong Memorial Hospital. Officers say the suspect fled in a vehicle shortly after the fight. Police say both victims are expected to survive.

Later on, another 19-year-old man was stabbed, this time on North Street near Hartford Street. Police are still investigating that stabbing, but say the male was taken by private vehicle to Rochester General Hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

Police are looking for the suspects in both stabbing.
