ANTIOCH – Police in Antioch on Monday released the identity of a man suspected of stabbing a pregnant woman and two children on Saturday.
Bartley Hall, 37, of Antioch, is charged with three felony counts of attempted murder and two felony counts of evading a police officer, police said.
Officers responded to reports of a disturbance around 4 p.m. on Saturday in the 100 block of Wilbur Avenue in which people were being stabbed, police said.

All three victims were transported to local hospitals. Two of them were in critical condition as of Saturday.
As officers arrived, they noticed a vehicle fleeing from the neighborhood at a high rate of speed. One officer pursued the vehicle, which was eventually involved in a collision in Solano County.
The alleged driver of that car, Hall, was arrested.
