(CBS/WBOC) GREENWOOD, Del. - Ricky A. Brewington, a Delaware man, was arrested by Delaware State Police after allegedly stabbing his parents in the home where all three reside on Sunday morning, CBS affiliate WBOC reports.

Police say Brewington, 51, used a butcher knife to stab his 80-year-old mother and 82-year-old father in the kitchen of their home in Greenwood at around 9 a.m. Sunday. According to police, after the stabbing took place, the victims drove to the Greenwood Fire Department to receive medical care. Brewington stayed behind and called 911 to report what had just occurred, WBOC reports.

Troopers said a Greenwood police officer reported to the scene and took Brewington into custody without incident. The victims were taken by ambulance from the fire station to Nanticoke Memorial Hospital in Seaford. They both had multiple stab wounds but remain in stable condition.

Brewington is charged with two counts of attempted first-degree murder and two counts of possession of a deadly weapon during the commission of a felony, WBOC reports. He is being held in the Sussex Correctional Institution on $150,000 cash bail.
