Police arrest homeless man in Kansas double stabbing

TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) – A 34-year-old homeless man has been arrested for attempted murder after police say he stabbed two people in Kansas last week.

The man was booked early Sunday morning in the Shawnee County Jail on charges of attempted first-degree murder and aggravated battery.

Police officers who arrived Thursday afternoon to the home say they found 54-year-old Sheila Kay Alexander suffering from a stab wound to her neck and 28-year-old Jason Lewis Alexander with a stab wound on his leg.

Officials say the mother and son were taken to a hospital with non-life-threatening injuries. A motive hasn’t been released in the attack.
