State police say an early morning altercation at a campground in Palmyra left two young men with stab wounds.
The investigation began around 3 a.m. Friday after a motorist found 22-year-old Joseph Elston of Detroit on the ground near Route 152 in Pittsfield. Elston was taken to a nearby hospital and treated for facial lacerations and superficial stab wounds to the arm.
State police quote witnesses as saying Elston was involved in a fight with 22-year-old John Haskell of Pittsfield that involved a 9-inch hunting knife.
Investigators say no charges are anticipated until the district attorney has a chance to review the evidence.
