(Reuters) - A female worker at a New York City daycare center stabbed three infants and two adults early on Friday, injuring one child seriously, then cut her own wrists, police said.

The incident occurred at the daycare center in the borough of Queens at about 3:30 a.m. EDT, a spokesman for New York City Police Department said.

The unidentified worker stabbed two infant girls and one infant boy as well as a man, believed to be a father of one of the children, and a female coworker, police said.

One of the infants was in serious condition, the police spokesman said.

The suspect has self-inflicted wounds to the wrists and was in custody. She was in stable condition, police said.

Police said it was not immediately clear why she attacked the children and adults.

It will be a roller-coaster ride for temperatures, with Sunday's warm start melting overnight snow and threatening flooding in areas including southeastern Massachusetts.
