A man was stabbed in the back and another was struck in the head with an unknown object during a confrontation in Oxnard.

Investigators said an apparent confrontation between two men, 18 and 20 years old, led to the stabbing in the 700 block of Teakwood Street around 1:50 p.m. Saturday.

One of the two unidentified male victims was found suffering from a stab wound to his back. He was transported to Ventura County Medical Center, where he was listed in stable condition.
