Two women are in critical but stable condition after being stabbed at a home in west Phoenix. 

Phoenix Police say officers were called to an apartment complex in the area of 43rd Avenue and Indian School around 9 p.m Thursday. 

A man was reportedly arguing with his ex-girlfriend when he began to stab her. The woman's mother attempted to intervene and the man stabbed her in the back. 

Both women were able to flee to a neighbor's home and were taken to the hospital.

The suspect fled the scene on foot and has yet to be located.
