A Glendale man arrested for allegedly injuring his father in a stabbing at their family home last week was identified by police Monday as 28-year-old Nicholas Rowe.
Police received the call at 11 p.m. July 3 about a suspected knife attack at 1100 N. Louise St., said Glendale Police Sgt. Tom Lorenz.
Rowe had fled the scene on foot by the time officers arrived, but was arrested at about 9 a.m. on July 4 after someone spotted him in the area of San Fernando Road and Wilson Avenue, Lorenz said.
Rowe’s father, Christopher Rowe, 62, was stabbed once in the neck and was taken to
in stable condition, police said.
A family friend who joined the family for dinner suffered a small cut on his finger in the attack, but was cleared by an on-site medical team.
The knife was recovered at the scene, Lorenz said.
Christopher Rowe told detectives he doesn’t know why his son allegedly attacked him and that there was no history of violence between them, he said.
“Detectives are investigating the assault and trying to determine what precipitated the event,” Lorenz said.
Two charges of assault with a deadly weapon were filed against Nicholas Rowe on Tuesday, according to spokesman Ricardo Santiago of the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s office.
He is being held in lieu of $500,000 bail.
