Nicole Darrington allegedly stabbed her two grandchildren and daughter on Monday morning

Nicole Darrington Clark, 43, is also accused of critically wounding her daughter and another granddaughter in the Monday attack, the Los Angeles Times reports.

Anyone with information about the stabbing incident or the whereabouts of Nicole Darrington Clark are encouraged to call the Colton Police Department directly at 909-370-5000 or to call 911.

A 43-year-old Southern California woman who once was found not guilty by reason of insanity to the attempted murder of her own children is now suspected of stabbing her daughter and two granddaughters.

Relatives say a Southern California woman suspected of fatally stabbing her 18-month-old granddaughter became distraught late past year after she was separated from her young son.

Colton Police Corporal Ray Mendez says the grandmother is considered armed and unsafe.

At an apartment complex in Riverside's University neighborhood, a person who knew Darrington-Clark and was stunned to hear about the stabbing Monday afternoon said Darrington-Clark had just moved out of the complex Friday.

"She was stabbed everywhere", Williams said.

Police identified Nicole Darrington Clark as the suspect.

Nicole Darrington-Clark is seen in a photo distributed by Colton police. Officers responded to an apartment where the suspect and victims apparently lived together, investigators said.

The Times notes it is not immediately clear when or why Darrington Clark was released from the mental hospital, or if the daughter who was hurt in the 2005 attack is the same one who was injured in Monday's stabbing. It is unclear why she was released.

Darrington Clark had previously pleaded guilty to stabbing her son and throwing her daughter out of a van while driving on a freeway in 2005.

When FOX 11's Hal Eisner tried to talk to her all Michele Bell could say was,"I ain't never been around her". She may be driving a black four-door 2013 Hyundai Sonata with the California license plate 7TQL009.

The surviving sister and mother, both taken to the hospital in critical condition, came out of surgery Monday afternoon and were stable, Mendez said.

Though the attack sounded "just very bad", neither child was seriously injured, a prosecutor said.

"I FaceTimed with her a few days ago and I was anxious about her", O'Neal said.

Darrington Clark left before police arrived.

But a judge found Darrington-Clark not guilty by reason of insanity and sent her to a mental hospital.
