Northern Va. Couple Stabbed in Home Invasion

Posted:

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.

    Proposed Roundabout for Wicomico County Intersection

    There is a intersection in Salisbury off Route 50 that has several roads leading into it and 12 traffic lights regulating it. 

    Mount Hermon Road, Long Avenue, Truitt Street, East Williams Street, and Main Street all intersect at one central location. 

    People in the community have mixed feelings about the intersection. Some say it should be left alone because it regulates traffic just fine while others say it is a nuisance.
