Men Stabbed After Bar Fight Spills Into Street

Two men were hospitalized after a double stabbing outside an area neighborhood bar early this morning.

A fight near closing at the Sheffield Tavern at Sheffield and Jackson Streets in Northeast Philadelphia’s Holmesburg section spilled out of the bar, according to Philadelphia Police.

Around 3 a.m., officers responded to the bar to find two men suffering from stab wounds. One of the men was bleeding profusely from an arm wound while another was cut on the hand.

Investigators didn’t identify either man and they also didn’t say who exactly stabbed the men.

The incident remains under investigation. Anyone with information should contact Philadelphia Police.

This stabbing capped another bloody night in the city. A 19-year-old man was shot and killed in a drive-by shooting while he was walking home along the unit block of Robinson Street in West Philly.
