TOWN OF WAUKESHA -- A quadruple stabbing in the Town of Waukesha Tuesday night, March 10 ended with the deaths of two women and the hospitalization of two other women. Police said a man was arrested at the scene.
A call for help led to a gruesome discovery. Neighbors told FOX6 News they were home cooking when they saw their neighbor hiding in the backyard. She told them, "My son-in-law stabbed me!"
Officials with the Waukesha County Sheriff's Department said they arrested a man on the scene. In total, four women were stabbed.
On Wednesday, March 11, officials released the names of the victims -- Dominique Roth, 34, and Deidre Popanda, 26. The survivors, ages 36 and 62, were recovering from their injuries.
"It's kind of scary seeing crime tape three houses down the street. It's kind of terrifying," said Michele Anzivino, a neighbor.
Those living in what is considered a secluded and quiet part of town were shaken by the violence.
Authorities remained on the scene Wednesday sorting through evidence. Neighbors told FOX6 News the home is a rental property -- and there were never issues there until Tuesday night.
"I would have never expected something like this to happen, but it can happen anywhere," said a neighbor.
Many Wednesday were thinking of a young child who ran for help.
"It's terrifying. I can't imagine a 10-year-old living through that," the neighbor said.
Sheriff's officials did not release additional information on the suspect or motive Wednesday.
