A family dispute turned violent Thursday when a 60-year-old man stabbed his older sister and another person at a northwest Miami-Dade home, according to police.
The stabbing suspect was taken into custody in the attack on his 63-year-old sister and a 74-year-old man, according to police Detective Javier Baez. Both victims were taken to Ryder Trauma Center, where they were listed in critical condition, police said.
The double stabbing was reported at 11:13 a.m. in the 1600 block of Northwest 118th Street, police said. The suspect held a knife as he came out of the front of the home, neighbors said. Still, police were able to arrest him.
The names of those involved haven’t been released. Cristina Armand, spokeswoman for Miami-Dade Fire Rescue, said the injured were taken by helicopter to the hospital.
