Three children, including a three-month-old baby, were found with “serious stab injuries” after an incident at their home on Monday morning.
Concerned ambulance crews rushed to a house in Huddersfield, West Yorkshire, and contacted police this morning after a four-year-old girl, two-year-old boy and a three-month-old baby boy were found with serious stab injuries.
They were rushed to hospital and a 34-year-old woman, who is under arrest on suspicion of attempted murder, was also treated for injuries.
Police say they are carrying out extensive enquiries and supporting the family at this distressing time, the Mirror reports.
Detective Chief Inspector Sam Freeman, of the homicide and major enquiry team (HMET), said: "We continue to carry out extensive inquiries into this incident which resulted in three children suffering serious injuries this morning.
"A woman continues to be treated for injuries and remains under arrest in hospital. Based on our investigations so far, we are not seeking anyone else in connection with what has taken place.
"Officers continue to support the family involved at what is clearly a dreadful time for them.
"I would like to remind residents that this case involves very young children and ask that their privacy is respected and members of the public avoid unhelpful speculation which can only increase distress for the family involved."
The four-year-old girl and three-month old baby injured in the incident are being treated for non-life-threatening injuries while the two-year-old boy is described as being in a serious but stable condition.
A police cordon remained in place until around 3pm as forensic officers in white protective clothing were seen coming in and out of the mid-terrace house.
Chief Inspector Rebecca Calpin, of Kirklees Police, added: "Reassurance patrols are taking place in the local area by officers from the Huddersfield neighbourhood policing team and will be continuing throughout the day as Kirklees officers work to support colleagues from HMET."
