Man Arrested For Allegedly Stabbing His Wife Multiple Times

Posted: Updated:

GEORGETOWN, Del. - Delaware State Police say a 52-year-old man was arrested Sunday night after he allegedly stabbed his wife during a domestic dispute.

According to reports, around 8:12 Sunday night, Police responded to the 12000 block of Seashore Highway for a 911 call. Police say they made contact with the victim who had been stabbed multiple times in the upper torso.

Through an investigation, Police say Albert Norman allegedly stabbed his 37-year-old wife. Witness accounts from the victim and the couple's children stated that the two were talking about potentially ending their relationship when Norman began stabbing the victim in the back.

Reports say the children stepped in and their mother was able to escape and hide in a next door neighbor's house.  Norman allegedly followed and confronted the 57-year-old neighbor, threatening to stab him as well. Authorities say Norman eventually left in his car where he drove himself to Troop 4 in Georgetown and turned himself in.

The victim was reportedly transported to Nanticoke Memorial Hospital where she underwent surgery for her wounds and is currently listed in serious but stable condition.

Police say Norman was charged with 1st degree attempted murder, terroristic threatening, two counts of endangering the welfare of a child, among other charges.

He is being held without bail.
