DELAWARE, OH (WCMH) — Prosecutors say a man in Dublin is facing attempted murder charges after he tried to kill his parents. 

According to the Delaware County Prosecutor’s Office, on March 7, emergency dispatchers received a phone from a woman saying she and her husband were hiding in a bathroom after being attacked with a knife by their son. 

When police arrived at the Dublin home, they found the mom and dad with multiple injuries. The victims were taken to Riverside Methodist Hospital for treatment. 

Police say the suspect, Ashton Packard, 28, had fled the scene before they arrived, but was located in the neighborhood hours later.  

A Delaware County Grand Jury indicted Packard on two counts of attempted murder and two counts of felonious assault.
