Northern Va. Couple Stabbed in Home Invasion


MCLEAN, Va. (AP) - A northern Virginia couple stabbed during a home invasion have life-threatening injuries.

Fairfax County police say a McLean resident answered a knock on his front door Sunday night. A man waiting outside forced his way in and began stabbing the 61-year-old homeowner. Hearing a disturbance, the man's 61-year-old wife went to see what was happening, only to be attacked herself.

One of the victims activated an alarm, scaring off the attacker and summoning police. After talking to the residents, police say they soon after tracked down and arrested the 31-year-old attacker and another suspect, a 30-year-old woman.

Police say the couple had multiple life-threatening stab wounds to their upper bodies.

Detectives believe the suspects knew the victims. None of their names have been released.
