Two men had their throats cut Wednesday night as what was supposed to be a good time at a Coldplay concert turned violent.

Police and paramedics were called to the Saddledome shortly after 10:30 p.m. by venue security.

“We found two (adult) male victims that appeared to have suffered slash wounds to their throats,” said Insp. Craig Skelton of the Calgary Police Service.

Both men were taken to hospital, one in serious but not life-threatening condition and the other with less severe injuries.

“(We’re) not sure if it was a fight or an assault or what happened.”

Skelton believes the incident happened inside the Saddledome. A number of people have been detained as police investigate.
