Santa Barbara County Sheriff's officials say a group of people confronted two men in their 20s around 12:15 a.m. on the 6500 block of Del Playa Drive.

An argument broke out and quickly escalated into a violent confrontation. One of the men was stabbed in the back. He is hospitalized in serious condition. The other was hit over the head with a bottle and suffered minor injuries.
