PRINCETON (1080 KRLD) - Two people are in the hospital after a guest in their home attacked them.

The couple live in Princeton near Lake Lavon. Police say 25-year-old Donovan Cole is accused of stabbing them both around 3:00 a.m. Monday.

“It appears Mr. Cole was a friend of the male victim and was spending the night at the house when the offense occurred,” says Collin County Sheriff Lieutenant Nick Bristow.

The man and woman were taken to separate hospitals, and their conditions are currently unknown.

Investigators are still learning what led to the stabbing.

Cole is now in the Collin County jail facing two charges of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.
