DYKER HEIGHTS, Brooklyn — Two people were stabbed in Brooklyn on Sunday evening, police said.

The stabbing happened on 14th Avenue by Dyker Beach Park around 5:15 p.m., officials said.

Police told PIX11 early Monday that two people were in custody and being questioned in the stabbing.

The victims were rushed to local hospitals. One of the victims was in serious condition. He was stabbed in the chest and neck. The other victim is a relative.

Family members of the victims said this wasn't a random attack. The victims had gone to 14th Avenue to meet their attacker over a dispute, but the attacker brought a knife.

According to police, the dispute started when their children got into a dispute at school and the parents got involved, leading to the stabbing near the park.

Earlier Sunday, police responded to a Coney Island stabbing. The 42-year-old victim was rushed from West 15th Street to a local hospital where he was pronounced deceased. No arrests have been made in that attack.
