A Garden Grove woman stabbed her two daughters and then tried to ki*l herself inside a Westminster home this morning, police said.

The 38-year-old woman, who has not been identified, was staying overnight with her daughters at a cousin’s home when the violence occurred, said Westminster Police Officer Van Woodson.

Woodson said that about 6:30 a.m., the cousin’s wife called authorities to report the stabbings at their home in the 14300 block of Starsia Street. He said the woman stabbed her 5-year-old daughter once in the chest and stabbed and slashed her 3-year-old multiple times in her upper torso.

“The other residents of the house were awakened to the screaming,” Woodson said.

He said the woman admitted to officers that she stabbed her children and then tried to ki*l herself. All three were taken to a hospital.

The 5-year-old is on life support, and the mother and younger daughter are expected to survive, he said.

“We’re trying to make sense of it,” Woodson said.
