Gilbert Gallegos, a spokesperson for the Albuquerque Police Department, confirmed to the Albuquerque Journal that no one died in the seemingly unprovoked attacks, but two victims remain in critical condition.

The first stabbing occurred at around 11 a.m., followed by as many as six other attacks before police took the suspect, who has not been identified publicly, into custody, KOAT reported.

According to the Journal, the first attack occurred outside of Sister Bar and at least one other attack occurred at a homeless encampment.

“There doesn’t seem to be any rhyme or reason,” Gallegos said during a Sunday evening press conference.

Police also confirmed that the suspect had a knife near him at the time of his arrest, but they have not elaborated on the potential charges he faces, the newspaper reported.

Detectives are attempting to determine if the suspect in custody acted alone, KOAT reported.
