- The NYPD says five people, including three baby girls, were stabbed at an unlicensed, overnight day care center in Flushing, Queens by a woman who later tried to take her life.
Investigators said they believed the home served as an informal neighborhood daycare center.
The victims - two little girls and a boy, plus two adults - were in stable condition Friday at local hospitals, NY police said.
It was not immediately clear how many other children were at the center at the time of the assault.
The victims and their assailant were rushed to a hospital, where one of the girls was listed in serious condition.
