FALCON HEIGHTS, MN (AP) - Police say two men who were stabbed at the Minnesota State Fair did not stab each other but are refusing to cooperate with investigators.
 
State Fair Police Chief Art Blakey Jr. says the two men likely know who attacked them Sunday night but weren't offering up their assailants' names Monday.
 
Police identified the victims as 28-year-old Sarasovarn Sourng and 28-year-old Narypeo Chap, both of St. Paul. They were taken to Regions Hospital, where they are expected to fully recover from their abdominal wounds.
 
Blakey, who has been chief for 38 years, says the last stabbing at the State Fair was in 2007. He says more than 100 officers are working at any one time during the Fair and it remains a safe place for families.
