Multiple stabbings left at least five people, including three infants, at a New York day care injured on Friday, according to a local news report.

NBC New York reported that a 52-year-old woman employee attacked another female employee, a father and three of the children in the day care at 4 a.m.


Assistant Chief Juanita Holmes gave additional details in a press conference later Friday morning. The father was stabbed in his leg, while the female coworker was found with multiple wounds in her torso. Ms. Holmes also revealed the children were three days to one month old.

“All of the injured were moved to area hospitals in critical but stable condition,” Ms. Holmes said.

The injuries are not considered life-threatening, police told the local NBC affiliate, but one of the children is in serious condition.

The woman was found in the basement of the Queens day care with self-inflicted wounds on her wrists. She is in police custody.
