A Mesa man was taken into custody Sunday on charges of stabbing his parents, police said.
Zachary Schneider, 22, was booked into jail on two counts of aggravated assault.
The 48-year-old female victim called police at 12:55 a.m. and told the dispatcher that her son had stabbed her, said Mesa police Sgt. Tony Landato.
The caller said her son was now attacking her 54-year-old husband.
When officers arrived at the home in the 400 block of South 26th Circle, they found the two victims bleeding profusely from multiple wounds, Landato said.
The man's mother suffered a 3 to 4 inch laceration on her left shoulder/neck area.
His father suffered a number of injuries, including a stab wound to the left ear, two lacerations along his left side, two stab wounds to his right shoulder, a broken jaw and a cracked rib.
Police quickly located Schneider and took him into custody without incident.
Both parents were rushed to the hospital and are expected to survive, Landato said.
The woman said her son battles mental issues.
Officers located a knife in the backyard. They said it matched the description given by the woman.
