(Scroll down for video) A man was arrested and charged with attempted murder related charges after he stabbed his own father, according to police reports in California.

Redding Police said that a man, who stabbed his father before using an arm saw to cut his own hands, pleaded not guilty this afternoon after being charged with attempted murder.

Jason Dunn, 27, is accused of attacking his father, Gregory Alan Dunn, before cutting his own hands. He appeared in the Superior Court of Shasta County with his hands, which have since been reattached, completely bandaged.

Judge Elva Soper set his bail at $575,000 and scheduled a preliminary hearing for next week.
He is charged with attempted murder, assault with a deadly weapon, several other weapons related charges and with causing great bodily injury.

Deputies went to Dunn’s home located on Scheer Drive around 3:30 pm and found the old man lying in the driveway with multiple stab wounds. They also saw his son standing nearby with both hands severed at the wrists.

Gregory Dunn suffered from multiple stab wounds to the neck, throat and upper body, police said. Detectives said Jason Dunn uses a pair of scissors to attack his father.

“After stabbing his father several times, Jason Dunn then used an electric saw to cut off both his hands,” police told the court.
Both men were taken to Mercy Medical Center in Redding and detectives later interviewed Jason Dunn, who admitted stabbing his father during an argument.

Jason Dunn has no history of violent crime convictions in Shasta County.
Neighbors have said that the father and son were seen fighting lately.
