Updated Monday 11:13 a.m.

Vernon police on Monday morning were piecing together the details of a stabbing in Rockville.

At about 7 a.m., officers rushed to 119 Prospect St., where they found a man and a woman - both adults police spokesman Lt. William Meier said - with stab wounds.

The woman is 26 and the man is 35, Meier said.

They were taken to Rockville General Hospital and were being treated mid-morning, Meier said. Meier said they were stabbed in the neck. He said the injuries were serious but police do not believe they are life-threatening.

Meier said "all parties involved" have been located and were being questioned by police mid-morning. Police were also at the scene.

Police said the suspect is a 28-year-old woman who fled the scene on foot and was reportedly still armed with a knife. The area was surrounded by Vernon Police and a canine unit was called, police said.

After about a half-hour search, the suspect was located a block away on Oak Street, police said. The suspect resisted arrest and had to be subdued with a Taser before being taken into custody, police said.

Police have not yet released her identity. Police said the incident seems to be domestic in nature.

Wow, sounds like Rockville just cant get out of the toilet. Everyday there is something about Vernon in the Courant or Channel 3 news making the headlines. It just never fails. Is it that the police love to read about themselves in the press or is Vernon just becoming crime central?
