Charges are pending against a 42-year-old Rockton man after two men were stabbed inside a Crystal Lake home Thursday evening, police said.

The Crystal Lake Fire/Rescue Department and Crystal Lake Police Department responded around 7:29 p.m. Thursday to the 100 block of Edgewood Avenue for a report of three people stabbed.

Police officers found two men with stab wounds to the abdomen and a third man with minor lacerations to his arm, Crystal Lake Deputy Police Chief Thomas Kotlowski said.

Paramedics transported the two men with stab wounds to their abdomens to Northwestern Medicine Huntley Hospital. The third man was released from medical care at the scene.

The offender fled the scene before police arrived. Responding officers quickly located the offender, a 42-year-old Rockton man, and took him into custody without incident, Kotlowski said.

“This incident is a result of a domestic situation at the scene. There is no danger to the public,” Kotlowski said.

Police are in the early stages of the investigation and criminal charges against the suspect are pending.
