SAN ANTONIO -- Authorities are investigating a family argument that landed three people in the hospital with stab wounds.
Police were called to a home in the 12000 block of Maverick Bluff St., near Wetmore Road on the city's northeast side, around 12:30 a.m. Wednesday.
When officers arrived on scene, they found two females who had been stabbed multiple times -- one in her 30s and the other a teenager, according to the police report. Investigators determined them to be mother and daughter. Walter Skipper, 43, was also stabbed a number of times, according to the San Antonio Police Department.
Police said Skipper and the woman were arguing throughout the evening. In the middle of the night, the suspect -- who was sleeping on the couch -- gained access to the victim's room and attacked the mother with a knife, according to the police report.
During the struggle, the victim's daughter entered the bedroom and attempted to fight off Skipper. The suspect stabbed the 16-year-old twice in the chest after she hit him over the head with a glass vase, according to the San Antonio Police Department.
The daughter somehow managed to run outside the home, to a neighbor's house, and called for help.
Police said the mother had wounds on her neck and left side; Skipper had multiple lacerations on his abdomen.
The two females were taken to San Antonio Military Medical Center in critical condition. Skipper was treated by paramedics at the scene before being taken to University Hospital in critical condition.
SAPD said the case is still under investigation.
Skipper is facing charges of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, according to the police report.
