CHICO, Calif. - The Chico Police Department is investigating three stabbing incidents within 10 hours.

Chico Police Chief Mike O'Brien said that all suspects involved in the stabbings are in custody and the victims are in stable condition. 

The latest attack happened on Tuesday morning around 7 a.m. when authorities say a man stabbed someone at the Villa Sierra apartment complex on Nord Avenue. He then ditched a knife outside of Goji Market and barricaded himself in a residential garage on Stewart Street, according to authorities. 

"I heard a noise, ran around, got a police officer, he said there's somebody in my garage," said Phyllis Becker, a resident in the area. "They told me to get my butt in the house, stay there, don't go out. I said, 'OK!'" 

The suspect involved was detained without incident. 

"It appears at this point from what I understand we've made arrests for all three incidents," O'Brien said. "All three suspects are in custody at this point."

Police said the same suspect stabbed another person at the same location on Nord Avenue Monday night around 10 p.m. 

The third stabbing happened on the 2700 block of White Avenue on Monday night.

Police say the suspect stabbed the victim in the abdomen after being confronted about stolen property. The suspect, who is a juvenile, is in custody.
