An adult male allegedly stabbed multiple victims in the Rockford, Illinois area on Wednesday, leaving four people dead, one in critical condition and four others in stable condition, authorities said in a press conference Wednesday. A postal worker is among the four individuals who died, Rockford Police confirmed. Details about the other victims have not been released. 

The attacks took place before 1:15 p.m., local time, near Holmes Street, Cleveland Avenue and Eggleston Road, according to authorities, who noted this was a "multi-jurisdictional crime scene." Winnebago County Sheriff Gary Caruana said there was a home invasion near the intersection of Florence and Eggleston Road. A young woman who fled from the residence with stab wounds in her hands and face is in critical condition, Caruana said.

A "Good Samaritan" who stopped to help the woman was also allegedly stabbed by the suspect, Caruana said, but that individual is among those in stable condition.

A postal carrier was among four people killed when a man went on a stabbing rampage in a northern Illinois city, authorities said Thursday.

The attacks in Rockford on Wednesday also left seven people injured, and a 22-year-old suspect is in custody.

A 15-year-old girl, a 63-year-old woman, a 49-year-old man and a 22-year-old man were killed in the stabbings. Police said three of them died where they were attacked and a fourth died at a hospital. Authorities have not released the victims' names, but the United States Postal Inspection Service, a division of the United States Postal Service, confirmed Thursday that a USPS letter carrier was among the dead.
