Police are still searching for the 22-year-old suspect and her two armed henchmen.
A 22-year-old woman and her two armed "guards" held her ex-boyfriend and his two friends hostage, cutting their throats with knives and shooting a victim who tried to escape, according to police.

St. Louis police are still looking for the woman and her two goons, whose identities are still unknown.

Here's how police say this crazy attack went down.

The woman and her backup gunmen burst into a home on the 4400 block of Michigan Avenue in south city at 1:20 p.m. Tuesday and immediately held the three people inside -- including the woman's 26-year-old ex-boyfriend, a 24-year-old man and a 25-year-old woman -- hostage at gunpoint.

The knife-wielding attackers started cutting the victims, leaving all three with slashes on their throats.

The two male victims tried to escape. The ex-boyfriend jumped out of a window, but his friend wasn't so lucky. While trying to run out the front door, the attackers chased and shot at him, striking him in the stomach before fleeing the scene.

The three victims, including the man who was shot, were listed in stable condition at the hospital, police said.

Coincidentally, police are also searching for another slash-happy criminal after a woman cut her 29-year-old neighbor in the face during an argument over neighborhood gossip just twenty minutes earlier in the 3900 block of Hereford Street.

Here are the full reports from police:

This used to be a nice neighborhood, until it became more "diverse", if you know what I mean. ;)
