Police said Darnell Bailey, 18, barged into the home of a woman, 23, about 11:45 p.m. as she slept, ransacked her room and repeatedly stabbed her.

When she started screaming, her male roommate, 25, tried to stop the intruder and was stabbed several times.

Bailey then stole money from both of them, police said, and fled in the woman’s vehicle.

Police intend to book Bailey on counts of aggravated burglary, aggravated battery and theft of an automobile.
