Stabbing in Delaware’s Rodney Square

As people were headed home for the day, Monday, Wilmington Police were called to Rodney Square for reports of a stabbing.

Police say the incident occurred on West 10th Street, following a verbal fight and eventual physical struggle between two women. According to police, one woman pulled out a knife and swung at the victim several times, slashing her left bicep and neck, as well as puncturing her left underarm.
