PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) — Providence police are investigating three stabbings in separate incidents and trying to determine whether they're related.

The three victims were stabbed early Sunday morning.

A patron at Club Colosseum told police he suffered a minor wound during a fight at about 1:30 a.m. Police charged 23-year-old Elijah Smith of East Falmouth, Mass., with possession of a weapon, disorderly conduct and resisting arrest. A phone number for Smith couldn't be found and it's not clear if he has a lawyer.

A second victim reported being stabbed in the back shortly after 2:15 a.m. when he came upon a fight while leaving a friend's home. The third victim told police he got into a fight at Luna Night Club and suffered a minor wound a short distance away at about 2:20 a.m.
