Nine people, including six children, were stabbed, some with life-threatening injuries.

The children ran into an apartment and hid in a closet with other children until police told them it was safe to come out, he said.

Kinner also told the judge he wanted to represent himself, but Comstock balked, appointing him a public defender anyway, telling the suspect he could go forward alone at his preliminary hearing. "The 3-year-old girl, whose birthday it was, was one of those seriously injured". "We had children from different continents sitting at a small child's birthday party".

Kinner is an American, but the apartment complex is home to many refugee families and refugees from Iraq, Syria and Ethiopia were among the victims.

They believe Saturday's attack at a complex, home to many refugees, was motivated by "vengeance" after the suspect was asked to leave the place the day before over bad behaviour. He is scheduled for a court appearance on Monday.

Bones said the attack resulted in the most victims in a single incident in Boise Police Department history. The three other victims were adults who tried to intervene.

The woman who took Kinner in was not harmed and was not at the residence at the time of the attack.

Organizers of an Idaho candlelight vigil honoring nine members of refugee families injured in a stabbing at a child's birthday party are encouraging people to bring white flowers.

All of the victims were hospitalized in Boise; one child was later flown to a Salt Lake City hospital. "Our community is reeling from this attack". The attack had a devastating effect on the people.

Timmy Kinner is charged with the stabbing. The man, a temporary resident at the complex, had been asked to leave the premises Friday. The children hurt were between the ages of 3 and 12.

The St. George Police Department, in Utah, verified that in April the department arrested Kinner for theft. He has been charged with several felonies.

Police said Kinner, who is from Los Angeles, is not a refugee. Bones did not say why Kinner was kicked out, but he echoed Bieter's assurances that the crime in no way reflects on the attitudes of the city's 220,000 people in a metropolitan area dubbed "Treasure Valley".

Kinner returned Saturday, when the girl was having her party a few doors down from where he had stayed, according to police. The officers found the stabbing victims in the apartment where the birthday party had been occurring and in the parking lot. Bones said the victims were randomly targeted and had no prior connection of Kinner.

A motive in the mass stabbing is unclear, and it does not appear that Kinner knew the victims.

Police responded to a call about a man with a knife Saturday evening, and officers were on scene within 5 minutes. Police said their investigation is ongoing. "We are shocked and saddened by this senseless attack on members of the Boise refugee community", IRC Executive Director Julianne D. Tzul said in the statement.
