BOISE, Idaho — Two men are in custody after police say they linked them to a stabbing in Boise more than three weeks ago.

George O. Bush of Boise and Sam Sessou-Djokoto of Kuna, both 18, face charges of aggravated battery with a deadly weapon.

Both men were charged on Friday, according to police. Bush was arrested that afternoon, while Sessou-Djokoto was already in jail on an unrelated drug charge when the new charge was filed. 

Police previously said the stabbing happened shortly before midnight Oct. 26 in the 2100 block of Illinois Avenue. The two victims told police they were attacked after an altercation with a man they did not know. 

Boise Police originally released a description of just one person; it's unclear which of the suspects they were looking for, or why they now believe both men were involved.

The two men who were stabbed were taken to a local hospital for treatment, then released. 

Sessou-Djokoto and Bush are due to appear in court Monday afternoon for arraignment. Aggravated battery is punishable by up to 15 years in prison.
