Two Beloit residents suffered stab wounds in an attempted homicide incident Tuesday night, police said.

Beloit police were dispatched to a residence in the 300 block of Short Street in the city of Beloit around 6:20 p.m. for a reported stabbing incident, according to a release.

When officers got to the residence, they found that 44-year-old Vicky Wilson had been stabbed in the hand, officials said. They also found Bobbie Wilson, 72, lying on a bed in a bedroom with multiple stab wounds.
