A Boynton Beach man is currently behind bars after police say he attempted to kill his mother Saturday night.
Chris Demesmim, 24, is charged with attempted first-degree murder and two counts of aggravated child abuse.
Police said Demesmin attacked his mother with a knife in her Boynton Beach apartment.
Officials said he also battered his siblings before fleeing in a gray Saturn.
The Florida Highway Patrol took Demesmin into custody at around 9 a.m. Sunday after he was involved in a car incident on Interstate 95 in Oakland Park.
