Pontiac — Two homeless men were treated for knife wounds in McLaren Oakland Hospital following a stabbing incident Wednesday afternoon.

A 46-year-old man was reportedly stabbed in the forehead, throat and chest by a 52-year-old man about 3:30 p.m. in the 100 block of Baldwin Road, according to a preliminary report by the Oakland County Sheriff's Office.

The older man was also treated for hand wounds.

The altercation was believed to have started as an argument over the sale of "bad crack," with one man demanding an apology from the other for accusing him of selling bad drugs, according to authorities.

The two men were being held in the Oakland County Jail pending possible charges still to be determined, deputies said.
