Police say an employee of a Quincy home improvement store has been charged with stabbing a co-worker.

Chief Paul Keenan says the victim was stabbed in the leg during an altercation just before 8 a.m. Thursday.

Police say the 37-year-old victim may have been stabbed in the femoral artery, given the amount of blood at the scene, and is in critical condition at a Boston hospital where he is undergoing surgery.

The suspect, 36-year-old Jamal Boyd of Boston, fled into the nearby woods after the stabbing. He was contacted on his cellphone by an officer and returned to the store and surrendered.

He faces charges including assault and battery with a dangerous weapon. The Quincy Police Department's captain John Dougan says Boyd will appear in Quincy District Court Thursday afternoon or Friday morning.

The victim's name was not released.
