A Delaware man is in custody after police say he stabbed his elderly parents.

Police say it happened Sunday around 9 a.m. at a home on the 100 block of Broad Street in Greenwood where the suspect and his parents live.

Ricky Brewington, 51, allegedly used a butcher knife to stab his 80-year-old mother and 82-year-old father in the kitchen of their home. Investigators say the victims then drove to the Greenwood Fire Department for medical care while Brewington called 911 to report the incident.

A police officer arrived at the home and took Brewington into custody without incident. His parents were taken to Nanticoke Hospital where they are both in stable condition.

Brewington is charged with attempted murder and possession of a deadly weapon during the commission of a felony. He was committed to Sussex Correctional Institution on $150,000 cash bail.
