    Vernon police arrested a woman Monday morning suspected of stabbing two people in her Rockville home.
    Police said Alicia Smith, 28, 119 Prospect Street, stabbed two people in the neck around 7:21 a.m.
    The victims, a 26-year-old woman and 35-year-old man, are seriously injured, but in stable condition. They are being treated at Rockville General Hospital.
    Police said Smith ran from the scene and was found on Oak Street after a half-hour search. Smith resisted arrest and had to be subdued with a stun gun.
    Smith was charged with first-degree assault, second-degree assault, first-degree unlawful restraint, three counts of risk of injury to a minor, interfering with and resisting police and possession of hallucinogens.
    She is being held in lieu of a half-million-dollar bond and is scheduled to appear at Rockville Superior Court on Wednesday, Feb. 13.
    Investigators believe the alleged assault was domestic and not random.
