The man accused of stabbing his grandparents Saturday night is being evaluated at Community Regional Medical Center following his arrest Sunday.
Kenith Jordan was arrested by Fresno County sheriff’s deputies after someone called about a suspicious person in an area of grape vineyards on Barstow and Monroe avenues around 2 p.m., said Lt. Steve Card of the Fresno Police Department.
The victims in the stabbing, a 68-year-old man and 64-year-old woman, were attacked in their central Fresno home on the 3000 block of West Pico Avenue, Card said. The couple received cuts to the head, face and neck in the alleged attack reported to police just after 7 p.m.
Card said both victims were in stable condition at Community Regional Medical Center. Jordan doesn’t live at the home, but paid the couple a visit Saturday night.

“He showed up ... and attacked both of them,” Card said.
Card said Jordan is believed to have psychological issues. He will be booked into Fresno County Jail after he is released from the hospital.
