ANCHORAGE, Alaska — Police say twin brothers were injured — one critically — in a stabbing on an Anchorage bike trail.

The 22-year-old brothers, Joshua and Justin Toliver, were walking along the trail near 88th Avenue and the Old Seward Highway Friday night when they got in an altercation with a group of teenagers.

Justin Toliver was stabbed in his abdomen and upper torso and remains in critical condition. Joshua Toliver was treated and released after suffering cuts to his hand and hip.

One of the brothers told police they knew some of the teens but not the person who did the stabbing.

Police say the teens scattered as officers arrived. They spoke with several witnesses but the suspect remains at large. The case has been turned over to detectives for follow-up.
