Fridley police are looking for the people responsible for assaulting and critically injuring two 21-year-old men early Saturday morning.

Authorities say Anthony Michael McCollum of Hilltop and Yani Rudy Singh of Columbia Heights were found with life-threatening injuries after being stabbed several times just before 4:30 a.m. in the area of 77th Avenue and Main Street.

Officers say the men were attacked at a different location and tried to drive away from their attackers to the hospital.

One of the men, who was conscious when police arrived on scene, says he and his friend were at the Two Stooges bar in Fridley until 2 a.m. They met two women at the bar and agreed to give them a ride to Mississippi Street and University Avenue in Fridley.

When McCollum and Singh arrived in that area, two other men approached and started assaulting them, according to law enforcement. The two eventually drove away, looking for medical care.

McCollum was taken to a hospital in Fridley; Singh was taken to a Minneapolis hospital. Authorities say both men remain in critical condition and are in intensive care.

The women ran off following the attack, authorities say. McCollum and Singh weren’t able to describe the suspects in detail to police because of their injuries.

Authorities are asking anyone with information to contact the Anoka County Sheriff’s Office or the Fridley Police Department at 763-427-1212.

The incident remains under investigation.
