GLENDALE, AZ (3TV/CBS 5) -- Glendale police have a man in custody after he allegedly stabbed two women Monday night.

Police say 32-year-old Emil Kolenovic stabbed a 49-year-old mother and his grandmother, who around 60 to 70 years of age.

Kolenovic's mother was able to communicate with officers and told officers that he did this.

Kolenovic was later booked on several charges including aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and disorderly conduct.
