London man accused of stabbing another man in the head

A London man was charged with attempted murder after police said he stabbed another person in the head.

Christopher Robinson, 40, is said to have gone into the victim's bedroom and cut and stabbed him in the head as he lay in bed Friday night at a home off Tackett Spur Road, about 8 miles south of London, according to a news release from the Laurel County sheriff's office.

Robinson had a "large boot knife concealed in his jeans" before the assault and had said he was going to kill the victim, who was not identified, according to the release.

Deputies were called to the home at 10:17 p.m., and when they arrived, Robinson was already gone, having taken a relative's cell phone with him.

Deputies used the cell phone to track Robinson to a vehicle in front of Kroger on Shopping Center Road in London, where he was arrested at 12:47 a.m. Saturday.

The victim was taken to Baptist Regional Medical Center in Corbin with a serious injury.

In addition to the attempted murder charge, Robinson was wanted on two bench warrants in Laurel County, one for failure to appear in court regarding a charge of giving an officer a false name and another for second-degree escape and theft by failure to make required disposition of property. In the latter case, Robinson was said to have been serving a 90-day home incarceration sentence when he took off his ankle bracelet and left.
