— A 27-year-old man and a 29-year-old woman were stabbed Monday evening at a home on Tealwood Place in Raleigh, police said. 

Both victims were taken to WakeMed with serious injuries.

A 31-year-old man, who is considered a suspect in the stabbing, was also hospitalized with serious injuries. 

Police said the stabbing was not believed to be a random act, but they provided no details on a possible motive. The relationships between the victims and suspect were not released.

Neighbor Stacie Eickholt said her family was sitting at the dinner table around 6 p.m. when she heard a commotion outside.

"We heard the sirens and I'm like, 'That sounds pretty close.' We just kept hearing siren after siren," she said. "So I came out, my husband and daughter came out, and we get to the porch and, all of a sudden, we hear the cops down the street saying, 'Get your hands up!'"

Terri Daniels, another neighbor, said the situation was unnerving and that the north Raleigh neighborhood is usually quiet and friendly. 

"I love my neighbors. We spread mulch. We cut grass. We do things. We plant flowers," she said. "We don't stab people."

    @johnburnsnc: Sir, I cannot begin to completely know or feel what this event/tragedy has brought on the victims and neighbors. My concern as an "outsider" is "not random acts" have become frequent...virtually everywhere. "Not random act" is an interesting terminology, giving a false sense of security or grounds to overlook the frequency and breadth of these acts. @nitabitasmith's SN (side note) is quite insightful. It's more than just Rainwater/North Ridge.

    Grand Union- Or if the victims had a gun, they may not be in critical condition at WakeMed right now. Their story would be a lot LESS tragic

    @Mom2two It's the intersection of those two roads...anyways, please send prayers to both jamie and nation... This is a tragic time for both.

    It would have been nice last evening if the public was given SOME information....such as the suspect was in custody. Last night there was no mention of that, or if the public was at risk in any way. Hope these people survive their critical injuries.

    The Northridge area is not as safe as it used to be.
