Just before 8 p.m., deputies found Ricardo Fonseca Davalos with a wound to his mid section about 100 yards southwest of the end of Delta Street, according to the Sheriff’s Department.

Nearby on Railroad Street, deputies found Thomas Raymond Estrada, 51, with a stab wound in the face, authorities said.Both men were treated at Arroyo Grande Community Hospital, according to the Sheriff’s Department.

Investigators were following up on Tuesday and referring the case to the county District Attorney’s Office for any possible filing of criminal charges or seeking of arrest warrants.
