BOSTON (AP) - Three bleeding children ran down a street Saturday after being stabbed in what Boston police described as a domestic incident, witnesses said, and a man was later arrested.

Officer Stephen McNulty said the victims’ injuries are non-life-threatening, but one is more seriously injured than the others. All three are being treated at a hospital. He said an adult suspect was taken into custody in the attack, which was reported just before 1 p.m.

Witnesses told reporters in the Hyde Park neighborhood that the victims are two boys, one appearing around 6 years old and the other a preteen, and a girl who appeared to be a teenager.

Lizanna Guzman said she saw two boys running down her street with bleeding gashes on their arms, the older boy holding the younger boy’s hand. Guzman said the older boy was screaming, “He’s going to kill me!” The girl, who also had stab wounds, then ran to Guzman’s house. Guzman said she called 911 but the terrified children kept running.

Other witnesses said they then stopped at a corner store.

Witnesses at the store told The Boston Globe the older boy went inside and asked employees to “save my life” as the other two children waited outside. Store employee Mir Karim said a customer called 911 and an ambulance came for the children.
