RENO, Nev. (AP) -- Reno police have arrested a woman accused of stabbing two other women inside a Reno casino.

Police say 26-year-old Vanessa Hernandez-Duenas argued with the two women before stabbing them shortly before 5:30 a.m. Monday at the Atlantis Casino Resort Spa.

One woman was stabbed in the lower back and the other in her side. The second victim is six months pregnant but police say no one's life is threatened by the injuries.

The suspect was caught on security video surveillance and was located within several blocks of the casino on South Virginia Street. She's been booked on suspicion of two counts of battery with a deadly weapon.
