Baltimore County police say a Halethorpe man has been charged with attempted first-degree murder and other offenses in connection with the stabbing of his 14-year-old son Saturday morning.

Police say Charles V. Palmer, 50, was in his attic in his home in the 600 block of Washington Ave. about 9:30 a.m. with his son. The two were looking at knives when Palmer stabbed the boy in the neck. Palmer dropped the knife and the boy picked it up and ran outside with it, police said.

When police arrived, they said, they found the 14-year-old with a large wound on his neck, and he was taken to Johns Hopkins Hospital with injuries that were not expected to be life-threatening.

Palmer is being held without bail on charges of attempted first-degree murder, first-degree assault, first-degree child abuse and other related charges.
