Authorities said a man stabbed his mother's boyfriend and then his mother when she came to help.
Police said Juanito Ackerman, 22, stabbed Jiliali Jawad, 26 at a residence on Deshler Avenue around 9:45 a.m. Saturday morning.
Jawad was apparently dating Ackerman's mother, according to police reports.
Ackerman's mother, Cynthia Davila, 41, was stabbed several times when she came into the room after she heard the assault.
Neighbor Ray Iten said police cars at the residence are nothing new.
Iten said Ackerman suffers from mental illness and would sometimes cause trouble in the neighborhood.
“It's sad because I never could believe her son could do that to her,” said Iten.
When police found Ackerman, he still had the knife in his hands.
“He had a butcher knife in his hand, and you could see the blood on his hands and all the cops were out there with their guns drawn telling him to lay down and drop the weapon. It took him a few minutes, but then he threw the weapon and got on the ground himself",” said Iten.
Ackerman is currently charged with two counts of felonious assault.
The injuries to Jawad and Davila are not expected to be life-threatening.
