MEDIA DISTRICT NORTH -- Two men were stabbed five times between

a.m. Monday.

One man, 30, of Burbank whose name was not released, was stabbed four

hospital officials.

The other Burbank man, 21, was stabbed once in the lower left side of

his stomach, police said. He was taken to County-USC Medical Center.

His condition has not been released.

Witnesses told police about 20 people were confronting the victims

outside of the bar in the 1600 block of North San Fernando Boulevard.

When police arrived, they found the two men beating on the door of a

nearby apartment. One was standing and one was sitting, police said, and

both were covered in blood.

"No arrests have been made," Police Lt. Robert Giles said. "We're

still investigating."

Both men were intoxicated, Giles said.
