SEATTLE, Wash.- A 15-year-old boy and 21-year-old man were stabbed near a shopping center in West Seattle Thursday night, according to investigators. 

“We saw him bleeding out so like I said I gave him my shirt," Jose Garza said.

Garza said he knows both of the victims.  The group of friends was hanging out earlier in the evening.

Seattle Police found the victims in different locations near the Westwood Village plaza near the 2500 block of SW Barton. One of the victims was across the street by a bus stop and the other was at a fast-food restaurant.

“I seen a couple people running so it just looked chaotic for a second," witness Patrick Powell said.

Investigators have not been able to locate the suspect or suspects. Seattle Police said they were having a difficult time finding people who witnessed the attacks.

Both victims were transported to the hospital. Police believe the injuries are non-life threatening.
