Both were transported to a local hospital and were in critical condition.
Authorities were unsure whether the crimes were related but said they believed the injuries were inflicted by a third party and not the result of an altercation.
The suspect was preliminarily described as a Hispanic male, weighing around 230 pounds and wearing jeans and a hooded sweatshirt. He was last seen southbound on Walnut Street, according to police.
Ball Road was shut down between Disneyland Drive and Walnut Street during the investigation.
