Police are investigating a brawl during which two men were stabbed at a Center City club early today.

Neither victim was involved in the dispute that erupted inside the Whisper Club, 1712 Walnut St., about 2:45 a.m. and then spread to the street, police said.

Both men were reported in stable condition.

Police said a 24-year-old man was stabbed in the thigh inside the club and was taken to Jefferson University Hospital by a medic unit.

The second victim, a 34-year-old man, was stabbed in the lower back outside the club and went to the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania in a private car.

No word yet on what sparked the violence.

It was the second stabbing in the neighborhood in less than 24 hours.

Police said 30-year-old man was stabbed about 2:30 a.m. Sunday at 16th and Walnut Streets.

He was reported in stable condition at Hahnemann University Hospital.

Still no word on a possible motive.-
