At least five people, including three infants, have been stabbed at a Queens daycare, police say. One of girls is in a critical condition, but none of the injuries are believed to be life-threatening.
A 52-year-old woman working at the center has been arrested after the 3:30 am assault in the Queens borough of the city.
CBS New York reports that the daycare was in a home and it was not yet clear if it was being run as a licensed care center.
A sixth person was found in the basement of the day care center in the Flushing neighborhood.
Her identity has not been released.
Police said it was not immediately clear why she attacked the children and adults.
Officials said the woman injured during the attack was a worker at the day care centre. One of the girls was taken to the hospital in serious condition.
Antonetti said that the attacker, who has not yet been publicly identified, then slashed her own wrists.
A motive for the stabbings hasn't been determined.
