It was a violent start to the weekend in Billings with shootings, robberies, and stabbings reported over a 24-hour period.
According to the @BillingsPD Twitter page, there were two separate stabbing incidents early on Saturday morning (5/21) less than 3 hours apart.
The first incident was reported at 1:10 am Saturday when Billings Police officers responded to the 500 block of South 27th Street for a "residential disturbance." When officers arrived on the scene they located one male who had been stabbed and a female who was assaulted.
Both of the individuals were transported to area hospitals for their injuries, and only the female was arrested, according to the social media post from Sgt. Mansur of the Billings Police Department.
