By Rikki Cheese. CREATED Aug 15, 2014

Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- A 21-year-old promoter witnessed one of two stabbing attacks on the Las Vegas Strip.

Tyler Walkerow had just gotten off work at Diablo's Cantina near the Monte Carlo at about 3:45 Friday morning, when he saw a confrontation that spilled into the street.

Tyler said he saw, "Three black gentlemen and three Mexican getting into it, arguing and fighting, and all of a sudden the three Mexican gentlemen just started running the opposite way."

Tyler said he thought the victims were punched. He said he didn't know a knife was involved until he approached, and saw one man had been stabbed in the head; the other in the arm.

Tyler said he tried to stop the bleeding with his T-shirt until paramedics arrived.

The stabbing victims were treated and taken to the hospital. They're expected to be okay.

No word yet from police on the search for the suspects.
