DOVER, Del. - Police in Dover have arrested two people, in connection to two Monday evening stabbings.

Dover Police Department says they are investigating a stabbing incident that happened at around 6:55 PM, on Woodcrest Drive. Offices say they arrived on scene, and found a 22-year-old woman with a stab wound to her head.

According to the report, the victim was in a verbal altercation with 28-year-old Marculus Carter, of Felton, and 18-year-old Precious Dorsey, of Newark, during which Carter stabbed her with a steak knife. The victim was rushed to Bayhealth Kent General Hospital, where she underwent surgery immediately, and is now listed in stable condition.

Officers found Carter, who reportedly had a facial laceration. Police say Carter told them that Dorsey stabbed/cut him with the steak knife, as retaliation for him stabbing the victim. Carter was treated at Bayhealth Kent General hospital, then released. He was charged with assault 1st degree, criminal mischief, possession of a deadly weapon during the commission of a felony. Dorsey, who was apparently wanted by New Castle County Police for robbery, was charged with assault 1st degree for this incident, and robbery charges for the warrant.

Bond information is currently unavailable for both Carter and Dorsey. We'll bring you more information as it becomes available.
