Among the most seriously injured was a 49-year-old woman who police said was stabbed multiple times in the neck, head and back.

“It’s a very violent scene,” Philadelphia Police Chief Inspector Scott Small told WPVI-TV.

The suspected attacker, described by police as a 29-year-old who lived in the home, was found covered with blood a few blocks away, Small said. He had cuts on his hands and was taken to a hospital for treatment.

The attacks took place in three bedrooms on the second floor of the home, leaving a bloody scene, Small said. Two bloodied knives with 7-inch blades were found in the home, he said.

“One of the knives, that’s all metal, is actually broken, which goes to show how violently these individuals were being stabbed,” Small said.

Police haven’t released the suspect’s name or the identities of the six family members.
