Two people were stabbed in a Carlton Street apartment and their attacker arrested early Saturday after a crash, Buffalo police said.

Keith Dejournette, 59, of Carlton Street, was listed in serious condition in Erie County Medical Center, after being stabbed in his left leg and ear, according to police and hospital officials.

His daughter, Candace Stewart, no age available, also was stabbed in her lower left leg when trying to defend her father. She was treated in ECMC and released, a hospital official said.

Meanwhile, Lloyd Evans, 50, no address available, was arrested in the attack and charged with first-degree assault and criminal trespass, according to police.

The attack occurred about 12:30 a.m., when Dejournette returned to his Carlton Street apartment and found Evans in the living room with Stewart, police said. The attack occurred after Dejournette told Evans to leave, police added.

Evans, who was chased out of the apartment, drove off but was apprehended on Michigan Avenue, where he drove his car into a bar, police said.
