Posted: Updated:

LAUREL, Del. - The Delaware State Police has arrested 24-year-old Manuel Vasquez of Delmar, Delaware after he turned himself into detectives Friday afternoon.

Vasquez turned himself into State Police detectives after seeing himself on news outlets.  He has been charged with Attempted Murder 1st, Assault 1st, and Possession of a Deadly Weapon During the Commission of a Felony.  Vasquez was arraigned at JP2 and committed to SCI on $45,000.00 secured bond.

Troopers were called to the Five Points Liquor Store on North Central Avenue in Laurel around 4:00 p.m. Thursday November 29th after a 27 year old male was found lying on the ground near the rear of the store with stab wounds to his face.  The investigation revealed the 27 year old victim had just left the liquor store when he was confronted by Manuel Vasquez.  As the victim attempted to walk away from Vasquez, a physical altercation ensued and Vasquez stabbed the victim in the face with a knife multiple times.  Vasquez then fled the scene in an unknown direction.

The 27 year old victim was initially transported to Nanticoke Memorial Hospital and then later transferred to Christiana Hospital where he is currently admitted for his injuries.
