A Florida teenager stabbed a mother and daughter to death after following them home and crawling through their window while they slept, police said.

Sage Curry, 19, was arrested Monday and charged with two counts of first-degree murder and burglary, according to an arrest report.

Investigators said Curry confessed to the double murder in Largo Monday night – an apparently random attack that started when he saw the two women in public.

The victims’ identities have not been released, but neighbors told local station Fox 8 that a mother and daughter lived together at the home.

Police were called to an address on 8th Avenue NW shortly before 2am Monday after Curry went to ask a neighbor for help.

Officers entered the property and found two bodies on the floor. Curry allegedly admitted he had followed the victims home.

Police say he confessed to climbing into the home through a bedroom window and grabbing the sharpest kitchen knife he could find before killing the first woman by stabbing her multiple times in the chest as she slept.

Curry is then alleged to have turned the knife on the other woman after she heard the attack and rushed to the aid of the sleeping victim.

Afterwards, the teen allegedly sought help from a neighbor to treat wounds he sustained while fatally stabbing the second victim.

Jordan Martin, a local resident who said he worked with Curry at a nearby car wash, described the suspect as “nice” and “quiet.”

“Just shock overall, I’d never think someone like this could do something like that. So just shocked right now,” Martin told Fox 8.

Curry is being held at Pinellas County Jail. He has no prior criminal record as an adult.

During a court appearance Tuesday, the teen told the judge he couldn’t afford to pay for an attorney.

He has been assigned a public defender to represent him during legal proceedings.
