GRANBY, Conn. — A 40-year-old Connecticut man has been arrested on attempted murder and assault charges in connection with the stabbings of his parents.

Police in Granby say they responded to a domestic assault shortly after 3 a.m. Monday and arrested Christopher Rich outside his parents’ home.

Police Capt. William Tyler says Rich’s parents were conscious when officers arrived and are in stable condition at St. Francis Hospital and Medical Center in Hartford. Their names have not been released.

Tyler says no other suspects are being sought. The motive for the stabbings has not been disclosed.

Rich is detained on $500,000 bail pending a court arraignment Tuesday. It’s not clear if he has a lawyer who could respond to the allegations.
