MODESTO (AP) — Two teenage girls stabbed in Modesto on Saturday were in stable condition at a hospital, and that a third younger victim is improving, authorities said.

Modesto Police Sgt. Ivan Valencia says the stabbings of the girls, two 13 and one 11, was reported about 1 a.m. Saturday during a sleepover.

Investigators told the Modesto Bee they believe one of the 13-year-olds stabbed her friend and sister before stabbing herself.

“The first thing we wanted to do was rule out that this was a random act and that we didn’t have (an outside suspect) out there,” Police Sgt. Ivan Valencia told the Bee.

Detectives said they found a kitchen knife that appeared to have been used in the attack.

Modesto City Schools Superintendent Pam Able told the Bee that all three girls attend schools in the district.

Valencia said it isn’t clear if the teenage suspect could face charges but that police and prosecutors would meet with probation and social services to discuss the best course of action.
