Police Arrest Triple Stabbings Suspect

Sep 3, 2013

Mayfield Heights police say they have arrested a man who allegedly stabbed three people early Monday after breaking into their home.

Police say one of the victims identified the suspect, Matthew Cepik, as her former boyfriend. Police chief Fred Bittner says Cepik was arrested after he tried to take his own life by running into the path of a truck in Solon.

Bittner says Cepik was taken to a local hospital for treatment and charges are pending.

The victims, Cepik's former girlfriend, her mother and a family friend, were taken to a hospital and Bittner says they are expected to survive the attack.
