JERSEY CITY, N.J. (AP) — Three people were stabbed during a Jersey City robbery that ended with the alleged assailant's capture.

Twenty-seven-year-old Brian Fernandez of Jersey City faces three counts of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and several weapons offenses. His bail has not been set and it's not known if he has retained an attorney.

Authorities tell The Jersey Journal (http://bit.ly/16kxcFa) that Fernandez was captured by police just moments after he tried to run away from the crime scene.

Officers found the victims around 3:20 a.m. Saturday when they responded to a reported stabbing.

One victim was stabbed in the right shoulder, while another was stabbed in her left breast. The third victim was stabbed in the back and has a collapsed lung.

A fourth victim was not injured in the incident.
