A $500K warrant was issued for Charles Gregory Jones, 47, who's accused of stabbing his 69-year-old mother at her Ashfork home on Aug. 15.

ASHFORK, AZ (3TV/CBS5) -- The Yavapai County Sheriff’s Office's search for a man accused of trying to kill his mother is over.

The suspect, Charles Gregory Jones, was arrested in an area west of Ash Fork, off of Crookton Roaf, officials confirm. 

In addition to searching by ground transportation, YCSO said its teams used aerial surveillance to find Jones, age 47. He was found with a gun and knife when arrested. 

An arrest warrant was issued for Jones who is accused of stabbing his 69-year-old mother at her Ashfork home on Aug. 15.

The sheriff's office said deputies were dispatched to the victim's home based on reports that Jones was on his mother’s property in violation of an order of protection.

But Jones took off in his mother's car just before deputies got there.

Once they arrived at the scene, deputies found Jones’ mother inside the house suffering from numerous stab wounds to her chest and extremities. She also had possible broken bones.

The victim was airlifted to Flagstaff Medical Center. Although her injuries were extensive, she is expected to survive.

Jones needs to post $500K cash bond to be released, officials say.

Yavapai Silent Witness offered a $500 reward for any tips that led to the arrest of Jones.
