2 Florida children stabbed repeatedly by father's girlfriend, police say

Two children are recovering in a Florida hospital after, police said, both were stabbed  by their father's girlfriend in a seemingly unprovoked attack, according to the arrest affidavit.

According to the report, both kids – a 10-year-old girl and a 14-year-old boy – were attacked with a knife. 

The mom told FOX 35 that she was talking to her daughter on FaceTime when her daughter stepped away from the phone for a moment – and moments later, came back screaming and bleeding. 

"My daughter’s bleeding, and she’s screaming, ‘Mommy’ and I’m helpless. I’m here and she’s in Kissimmee. I kept calling the operator like, ‘Any update? I want to know.’ Come to find out, it was both my kids, and she was out to kill them," she said.

According to the arrest report, the father's alleged girlfriend, Doris Espinoza-Rodriguez, told detectives that she wanted to cause harm and that she was "going to go out with a bang." She was booked into jail on two counts of attempted first-degree murder, two counts of attempted felony murder, two counts of aggravated child abuse, and one count of aggravated battery with a deadly weapon.

Court records also show that Espinoza-Rodriguez had been charged with domestic violence in the past. She is being held on no bond, according to online court records.
