— 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."
