A Bloomfield man is suspected of stabbing his father with a kitchen knife during an argument on Wednesday.
Police responded to a disturbance on Carpenter Lane around 1:18 p.m. and found a 68-year-old man suffering from a stab wound to his chest.
After stabbing his father, Carlos Cameron, 35, ran from the home and the elderly man was transported to Saint Francis Hospital with life-threatening injuries that resulted in emergency surgery, according to Watertown officers. He remains in the intensive care unit as of Thursday morning and is in stable condition, according to police.
While police canvassed the area for Cameron, the Laurel Elementary School, which is located a few blocks away, was notified as a precaution, police said.
Cameron was found quickly at a house on Greenmeadow Drive and taken into custody. He was charged with first-degree assault on an elderly person, criminal attempt at murder, second-degree threatening and risk of injury to a child because a 12-year-old family member was present during the altercation, according to police.
Bond for Cameron was set at $1 million.
