Nassau County police officers responded to a home in East Meadow at approximately 6:30 p.m. on Wednesday, March 23, where there was a report of a domestic incident on Cooper Drive.

Upon arrival, police said that officers found a 38-year-old woman - whose name has not been released - with multiple stab wounds and an 18-month-old girl with a laceration to her arm, as well as a contusion and abrasions on her head.

While investigating the scene, officers also found a 37-year-old man who had a laceration to his neck, police said, which was reportedly self-inflicted during a suicide attempt.
