A Florida man was arrested for allegedly following two women home, breaking into their house and stabbing them both to death early Monday morning.
Largo Police officers responded to a 911 call on 8th Avenue NW near 10th Street NW just before 2 a.m. Monday.
Officers found two female victims dead on the floor of the residence. The victims were not identified.
Largo Police said a man followed the two women home after seeing them in public. He allegedly crawled in through a window while they were sleeping early Monday morning, WFLA-TV reports.
Largo resident Sage Curry, 19, was arrested Monday and charged with two counts of first-degree murder and armed burglary. He was held at the Pinellas County Jail.
Neighbors said a mother and daughter lived at the home, according to WFLA.
Police allege Curry stabbed the first victim multiple times in the chest while she was sleeping, WFLA reports. When the other woman heard the attack and came into the room, Curry allegedly stabbed her multiple times in the face and neck.
Police said Curry was injured in the second attack. He reportedly ran to a neighbor to request help for his injury. Curry’s booking information lists a “cut with stitches.”
Police said Curry “confessed to grabbing the sharpest kitchen knife he could,” WFLA reports.
WTSP-TV reports Curry admitted to rolling one victim off of a couch, where she was sleeping, “to make the incident look like an accident before he left the residence.”
