Berkeley police have arrested a man in connection with two stabbings that took place in downtown Berkeley Wednesday. 

Berkeley Police Department spokesperson Officer Andrew Frankel said Berkeley police officers responded to a stabbing on the 2000 block of Milvia Street just after 4 p.m. The officers found a man and a woman who had been stabbed by another man, a family member who had fled the scene. 

Frankel said the suspect was stopped a few blocks away in his car and taken into custody by Berkeley police officers without further incident. 

The victims were transported to Highland Hospital in Oakland where they were treated for non-life-threatening injuries. 

Frankel declined to name the victims and the suspect or give any other details about the incident.
