IDAHO -

A knife-wielding man stabbed nine people at a toddler’s birthday Saturday night at an apartment complex that is home to refugees in Idaho.

Timmy Kinner, 30, had been staying with a resident of the complex for a short while before being asked to leave because of concerns about his behavior.

Police say he returned Saturday, attacking the birthday party of a family who lives a few doors down from where he stayed.

The 3-year-old birthday girl, as well as five other children between the ages 4 and 12 were injured.

Three adults were also injured trying to stop the attack.

Police say there was no evidence indicating that the attack was a hate crime.
