Police responded to a report that one person was stabbed, then found a second person with stab wounds when they arrived.

Passersby were surprised to see crime scene tape in Downtown Crossing.

“I mean, it is concerning to know that someplace I am five days a week there was a stabbing,” said Kelsey McCormack.

The incident is under investigation.

No arrests were immediately made.
