MILWAUKEE — A 15-year-old boy and a 40-year-old woman are seriously injured after a man stabbed them near 6th and Orchard Monday morning, police say.

First responders brought the victims to the hospital, where their conditions stabilized.

Milwaukee police said an 18-year-old man was arrested. He was also taken to the hospital after suffering a minor cut.

The stabbing happened around 9:18 a.m.

Sharon has lived in her home at 6th and Orchard for more than 50 years. She spoke with us Monday morning but asked us not to show her face.

She says her neighborhood is a pretty safe area, but Monday morning she heard an alarming noise while she worked.

"I heard some man yelling or arguing, and a woman screaming. Almost sounded like a muffled scream," Sharon recounted.

A neighbor who did not want to go on camera says all three people involved are related.

They say they heard someone screaming for help, and saw the 15-year-old after he was stabbed.

Police said charges will be referred to the district attorney's office.
