Lexington police have issued an arrest warrant for a man in the stabbings of two people Sunday night.

Morgan Alexander Adams, 33 is charged with first-degree assault for stabbing a man and a woman, according to a news release by the department.

Police spokeswoman Sherelle Roberts said officers were sent to Hartford Place Apartments in the 1500 block of Martha Court about 10:15 p.m. They found a woman who had been stabbed in the neck, she said.

About the same time, Roberts said, a second call came in from another apartment on the street, stating a man had been stabbed in the arm.

Both victims were taken to University of Kentucky Chandler Hospital. There was no word Monday on their conditions.

Roberts said both victims apparently were in the same apartment when the stabbings occurred.

No description of the suspect was available, but Roberts said both victims apparently know the man.

Anyone with information regarding the stabbing or Adams should call police at (859) 258-3600.
