According to the Largo Police Department, investigators believe Sage Gayle Curry, 19, trailed the victims to their home after seeing them in public.

Cops arrived on scene after a neighbor called 911, and when they went inside an apartment they found the two victims dead, authorities said.

In the arrest report obtained by the Tampa Bay Times, police said Curry told officers that he entered the home through a window and attacked the two women “with the sharpest kitchen knife he could find.”

According to police, Curry repeatedly stabbed the first victim in the chest while she slept.

The second woman attempted to defend her, which injured Curry before he fatally stabbed her multiple times in the face and neck, according to authorities.

Curry faces two counts of first-degree murder, as well as a charge of armed burglary. He was booked into county jail and remains there without bond, authorities said.
