MILLERSVILLE, Md. (WJZ) — Anne Arundel County police have ended their search for a 21-year-old man in connection with the stabbing of his mother in Millersville. James Zito was taken into custody just after 11 a.m. Tuesday.

After receiving a call from a citizen, police found Zito near Glen Burnie Mall. He was immediately taken to an area hospital for medical treatment.

Police say they were called to the 700-block of Stacy Oak Way about 7:30 p.m. Monday for a report of family violence.

Officers at the scene found a 54-year-old woman suffering from multiple stab wounds. The woman was taken to Anne Arundel Medical Center with non-life threatening injuries.

Anne Arundel County police say Zito became violent for unknown reasons and restrained two family members inside of the home before later stabbing his mother multiple times in the upper body.  He fled on foot toward Red Birch Road.

Detectives had previously obtained an arrest warrant, charging Zito with first-degree assault and related charges.
