Two people suffered knife wounds -- one seriously -- during a Friday evening drug-related incident in Kenai.

The two victims were not identified, but both were transported to Central Peninsula Hospital for their injuries, one described in a Kenai Police Department release as "life threatening."

Also unidentified was the alleged assailant, a 17-year-old who was remanded to the Kenai Peninsula Youth Facility on seven counts, including two for assault in the second degree, four for assault in the third degree and one for reckless driving.

The incident occurred around 6 p.m. in a parking lot off of Coral Street. KPD investigation is on-going.
