A 21-year-old Jessup man is being held without bail in the Howard County Detention Center on charges of stabbing his stepfather during the weekend.

Howard County police arrested Montel Demain Gross in the 8300 block of Ashwood Court and charged him with first-degree assault after the Saturday night stabbing.

Police said Gross got into an argument with his stepfather, Benjamin Thomas, 41, who lives at the same address, when Thomas accused Gross of not paying rent.

According to a police report, Gross repeatedly stabbed Thomas the lower chest and right hand.

Thomas was taken to the University of Maryland's Shock Trauma Center and released.

A police spokesman said additional charges are possible, pending further investigation.
