INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) - A SWAT situation ended peacefully Sunday evening following a double stabbing on the city's southeast side.
Officers were called to the 400 block of Shelby Street around 5 p.m. to the report of a stabbing.
Police say there were two people stabbed at the scene -- a man with a critical stab wound to his stomach and a woman with non-life threatening stab wounds.
Both were taken to IU Health Methodist Hospital.
According to IMPD, a man police believe stabbed the two individuals fled to an upstairs apartment and locked himself in. The man refused to communicate with officers.
SWAT Team members were called to assist and residents were told to avoid the area.
Crisis negotiators were also on scene and after a short time convinced the man to surrender without incident.
Shortly before 7 p.m., police say the standoff ended peacefully.
A 62-year-old man, identified as Steven Skipworth, was in custody facing aggravated battery and battery charges following the double stabbing.
Police say the motive for the attack appears to be the result of a landlord-tenant dispute.
Both victims were listed in stable condition Sunday night.
