FRIDLEY, Minn. (KMSP) -

The Anoka County Sheriff's Office is looking for information regarding the brutal assault of two 21-year-old men in Fridley, Minn.

Fridley police found Anthony Michael McCollum of Hilltop, Minn. and Yani Rand Singh of Columbia Heights, Minn. at 77th Avenue and Main Street on Saturday, where they apparently fled after they were stabbed multiple times and savagely beaten by two men nearby and left with life-threatening injuries.

McCollum and Singh were at Two Stooges bar until closing time and met two women at the bar who agreed to give them a ride to Mississippi Street and University Avenue. When they arrived, one victim said two men assaulted the pair and fled, as did the two women from the bar, who are also considered suspects. The driver was conscious and provided police with limited information, but the passenger was unconscious.

There's another piece of potential evidence missing. The owner of Two Stooges bar said his surveillance camera hasn't been working for several weeks, so nothing was recorded near the bar.

“The suspect(s) description is very limited due to the consciousness level of the victims. Both males are only described as black males and the females who initially requested rides from the complainants are described as black females. The complainants were only able to give very limited information due to their injuries. The motive for the attack and further suspect information is unknown at this time,” the Anoka County Sheriff's Office said in a news release.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Anoka County Sheriff's Office or the Fridley Police Department at (763) 427-1212.

McCollum and Singh are both listed in critical condition at Unity Hospital and at Hennepin County Medical Center, respectively.
