Four people, including the suspect, were stabbed earlier this morning on a block of single family homes in Watts. Two of the females victims, aged 68 and 20, were stabbed in the head and were listed in serious and stable condition, respectively. Another 20-year-old female suffered a minor wound. The suspect, a male, was also stabbed and sent to the hospital with unknown injuries, but the LAPD has confirmed he is now in custody. "It's still unfolding," an officer said over the phone speaking to the unknown nature what happened.
