A party on the lower Mesa near Santa Barbara City College erupted into a brawl on Friday evening just before midnight, leaving two white men with stab wounds. The 23-year-old victim was treated for his injuries and released, but the 40-year-old victim remains in Cottage Hospital with what Santa Barbara police are describing as life-threatening injuries.

The party occurred on the 1000 block of Del Mar Avenue, and witnesses say that the victims were arguing with several suspects outside of the party. That verbal confrontation got physical and left both victims bleeding with knife wounds.

The investigation is ongoing, with a forensic team currently on scene Saturday afternoon. No arrests have been made.

Shall we survey or wager which substance was predominately involved? Alcohol or pot? I'll vote booze.

White people- always stabbing each other.

We only take the guns out if you wear a hoodie.

"White people- always stabbing each other."

Look at the bright side, at least then it's not a hate crime.

I guess since they are white it isn't gang related either and we aren't going to talk about illegal immigration, huh?

Ironically, most illegal immigrants are European or Canadian. The overstay the Visa crowd.

Notice the article does not mention who did the stabbing. So there's still a chance, AZ2SB.
