Arriving officers said they spoke with a 24-year-old woman and a 27-year-old man who reported being approached by the suspect while they were playing music on the steps of a nearby church.

"The suspect began yelling at them about the music and then stabbed the two victims before running away," police wrote in a blotter post.
