The next day at around 5:15 p.m., officers located two suspects at different homes in the 500-block of Rose Avenue. One of the accused was arrested, while the other tried to flee, but was caught a short while later.
Now, a 34-year-old woman and a 26-year-old man have both been charged with attempted murder. The man is also facing four charges of failing to comply with a release order.
The victim remains in critical, but stable condition, and police said they know the accused.
The two accused are being held in custody pending a bail hearing.
Police are asking anyone with information about the case, including dashcam or surveillance video, to come forward.
None of the allegations has been proven in court.
