ROCHESTER, Minn. (AP) - Rochester police say the injuries a toddler sustained at the hands of an intruder are life threatening.

The 2-year-old boy was stabbed in the abdomen by a male suspect about 6 a.m. Thursday. The intruder also stabbed a 26-year-old man who tried to intervene. A second man staying in the apartment received minor wounds during a struggle with the suspect..

Police Capt. Brian Winters says the mother of the toddler and a 4-year-old in the apartment had a prior domestic relationship with the suspect, but he is not the father of the children.

The toddler and the 26-year-old man underwent surgery for their wounds at Saint Marys Hospital. The Post-Bulletin says the suspect was treated at the hospital for injuries inflicted by a police dog. He has now been moved to the Olmsted County Jail.
