Teen charged with stabbing mother's boyfriend

A 15-year-old boy is charged with attempted first-degree murder after police said the teen stabbed his mother's boyfriend outside a Rosedale Panera Bread on Monday afternoon.

Baltimore County Police said that Timothy Edward Criner, 15, of the 3900 block of Fleetwood Ave. in Baltimore stabbed 44-year-old Michael Rector of Baltimore, who was dating Criner's mother.

Officers were called at about 1:15 p.m. to a parking lot near a Panera Bread in the 6400 block of Petrie Way, where they found Rector suffering from a serious laceration to his neck. He was taken to John Hopkins Bayview Medical Center, where he underwent surgery. He is listed in serious condition.

Criner was found in another area of the shopping center parking lot and arrested.

Police believe that Criner was not happy about the two dating.

Criner has been charged as an adult with attempted first-degree murder and first-degree assault. He was denied bail and is being held at the Baltimore County Detention Center.
