Two women have been stabbed to death and a man wounded near Los Angeles, and their alleged attacker is in custody.
Los Angeles County Sheriff's spokesman Mark Pope says the arrest came late Sunday after deputies were called to a Carson residence on reports of a man with a knife.
The suspect, who was naked, held deputies at bay by barricading himself in the residence, but he was eventually arrested.
Pope says when deputies went inside they found the slain women and the injured man.
He is hospitalized with stab wound to the upper body but is expected to survive.
Pope says that he doesn't know if the victims lived at the residence or the suspect's connection to them.
No other details were immediately available.
