PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – A man is facing charges after allegedly attacking his two children in a bizarre incident in Philadelphia’s Frankford neighborhood.

Police say that on Nov. 20 around 9:46 p.m., 27-year-old Dennis Hill, of Staten Island, grabbed his daughters, a one-month-old and a four-year-old, and began assaulting them.

After dropping the younger girl, Hill allegedly attempted to stab the four-year-old with a fork.

Luckily, witnesses inside the residence on the 1300 block of Sellers Street were able to take the children and restrain Hill until police arrived a short while later.

Both children were transported to St. Christopher’s Hospital, where they are in stable condition.

Hill is now facing numerous charges, including Attempted Murder, Terroristic Threats, Endangering the Welfare of a Child and Aggravated Assault.
