UPLAND BOROUGH, Pa. (CBS) – Police in Upland Borough say four people have been arrested after a stabbing incident over the weekend. It happened on the unit block of Upland Avenue around 6:18 p.m. when four suspects attempted to gain entry into the home occupied by a woman and her boyfriend.
Police say once inside, the victim’s sister – who was one of the suspects—and another man chased the two victims into a bedroom where the female victim was forced into a closet while the male victim was stabbed one time in the back.
Police say the male victim was able to free himself and call the police.

- John Mrak, 50
- Preston Jensen III, 32, of Brookhaven

All four suspects were sent to the George W. Hill Correctional Facility.

It’s unclear what sparked the stabbing.
