[UPDATE BELOW] A stabbing in Central Park at around 10:50 this morning left five people with minor injuries. According to an NYPD spokesman, a 30-year-old man slashed a 30-year-old woman in a wooded area off Central Park West and West 103rd Street, and in the process may have slashed himself. "It's unclear if that was an accident or intentional," the spokesman said.
Three police officers received minor injuries responding to the incident, though the spokesman declined to elaborate what they entailed. The suspect and the woman were transported to St. Luke's Hospital in stable condition, while the officers were taken to New York Cornell. The suspect is in custody.
The spokesman could not confirm a report by ABC that a four-year-old was also injured.
[UPDATE // 1:25 PM]Geoffrey Croft at A Walk In The Park reports that the pair were common-law partners, and the 4-year-old was their child, who witnessed the incident. A witness tells Croft that the man slashed his own wrists, and that the child was covered in blood. "His forearms were all bloody," the witness said of the suspect.
