MILLERSVILLE, Md. - Anne Arundel County police say a 21-year-old man accused of stabbing his mother has been taken into custody.

Police say James Arthur Zito was found Tuesday morning near the Glen Burnie Mall and was being treated at a hospital. Police did not disclose why Zito was hospitalized.

Officers had been seeking Zito since Monday night when they were called to a Millersville home for a report of family violence. Police 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.

It wasn't immediately clear whether Zito had a lawyer. A phone message left Tuesday morning at a listing for the family home was not immediately returned.
