YONKERS, N.Y. - Police in Yonkers are investigating a possible domestic incident that left two men with non-life-threatening stab wounds.

At approximately 1:40 a.m. on Monday, April 17, police were dispatched to a Warburton Avenue home for a reported dispute between roommates, Yonkers Police Sgt. Dean Politopoulos said.

Upon arrival, a female resident told officers that her 52-year-old roommate had come home intoxicated and attacked her two adult sons - 26 and 36-years-old - who live in the residence. Politopoulos said that the dispute culminated when the roommate attacked the pair, making contact with both. He then fled the scene.
