LAS VEGAS (AP) - Authorities have arrested a stabbing suspect who barricaded himself inside a Las Vegas home before allegedly setting the residence on fire.

Police had responded to a group home Wednesday night after a 49-year-old suspect stabbed a man and tried to stab two other victims.

Officers evacuated the home as the suspect refused to leave. A fire then broke out at the residence, and officers were able to arrest the suspect.

The stabbing victim sustained a minor injury and was treated at the scene.

The fire is still being investigated.
