Police say a man was stabbed about 10 times by his mother's boyfriend, a Fairview Township resident.

Bruce Jackson, 56, was charged with attempted criminal homicide and aggravated assault, both felonies. He also was charged with simple assault, a misdemeanor.

Fairview Township Police responded to a stabbing in the first block of Springers Lane about 9 p.m. on Oct. 18. 

Upon arrival, police found the victim on the ground unable to talk or breath "very well," according to charging documents. 

Police said the victim was bleeding profusely and was transported to Holy Spirit Hospital in Camp Hill for his injuries.

Jackson exited the house and was taken into custody by officers, according to police.

Jackson later told police he stabbed the victim "several times" with a knife, charging documents read. 

He also admitted to holding down the victim after the man collapsed from being stabbed, police said. 

Jackson said he thought the victim was going to die from the stab wound and did not call 911, police allege. 

Jackson was still in York County Prison as of Sunday, Oct. 27. His bail was set at $200,000. 

His preliminary hearing is scheduled for 10:15 a.m. on Nov. 6 with District Judge Scott Gross.
