Florida SWAT Team in Standoff With Man After Stabbings

A SWAT team surrounded a mobile home near where Nazi flags were flying Thursday after two people were stabbed there overnight by a masked man, authorities said.

Pasco County sheriff's deputies called in the SWAT team after trying to serve a search warrant Thursday morning at the trailer, sheriff's spokesman Doug Tobin said. He said authorities believed a man armed with a shotgun was barricaded inside.

"There has been a history of neo-Nazi activity in the neighborhood, but no clear evidence this is related to the stabbing," Tobin said in a statement.

A 45-year-old woman and a 17-year-old boy were stabbed at the home shortly after midnight, authorities said. The victims, whose names were not released, were taken to a hospital, and at least one was seriously injured.

Both victims were stabbed multiple times by a masked man, the sheriff's office said. The woman was stabbed first, but was able to seek help from a neighbor. The boy was apparently stabbed while trying to escape the trailer.

New Port Richey is about 40 miles northwest of Tampa.
