Two people were stabbed in front of two different hotels near Disneyland on Thursday night, and police say that a suspect has been arrested.

CBS L.A. reports that on Saturday afternoon, Anaheim police arrested 35-year-old Flavio Marquez on two counts of attempted murder.

According to ABC-7, the stabbings were reported at 7:59 p.m. and 8:01 p.m., respectively. The first victim, a 32-year-old man, was stabbed just outside the Springfield Suites Hotel on the 1100 block of W. Ball Road. The second was identified as a 30-year-old woman, who was attacked just outside the Holiday Inn on Walnut Street, just northwest of Disneyland.

Both victims were found in front of the Holiday Inn, with the "man lying face-down on a blood-spattered sidewalk." They are both in critical condition.

Officials told CBS L.A. that the stabbing is believed to be drug-related. According to KTLA, it's possible that the two victims knew each other, but that information is still being determined. Marquez is being held on $1 million bail.
