Two men stabbed overnight in Richmond’s Shockoe Bottom

RICHMOND, Va. (WRIC) – Two men were stabbed after leaving a nightclub in the city’s Shockoe Bottom area early Saturday morning.

The stabbing occurred in the area of S. 18th and E. Cary streets about 12:30 a.m., according to police.

Police would not say if the stabbing victims – both white – were wearing clothing that displayed white supremacist symbols.

There are no known suspects. No arrests have been made at this time.
