A neighbor accused of stabbing three people — including a pregnant woman — during a home invasion in Middle Tennessee has been arrested and charged, authorities say.
Austin Swanson, 23, was charged Tuesday with four counts of attempted first-degree murder, according to the Robertson County Sheriff’s Office. A 23-year-old pregnant woman, 52-year-old woman and a 53-year-old man were injured in the attack.
Deputies responded to reports of a break-in and stabbing at a home in Portland at about 9 p.m. Monday. Swanson, who was identified as the victims’ neighbor, was still inside the residence when deputies arrived, authorities said.
The victims were given medical care on scene and later taken to a hospital. The two women were listed in stable condition, police said, and the man was hospitalized in critical but stable condition.
Authorities said they’re still working to determine a motive.
Swanson remained jailed without bond as of Wednesday afternoon, jail records show.
Portland is about 40 miles northeast of Nashville.Internet Explorer Channel Network
