DOVER, Del.- Delaware State Police say a Milford man is behind bars after he knocked a woman out during a dispute that occurred at a Dover International Speedway campground.  

Martin Fowler, 19, is charged with first- and second-degree assault, and one count of disorderly conduct. He is being held in default of $25,250 bail.

The incident is alleged to have occurred at around 2 a.m. Saturday, Sept. 25, at Campground Lot 10 on Persimmon Tree Lane, located east of SR 1.

Police say a group of four men confronted two women at the campground and made sexual advances. When the women became offended, an argument ensued. Police say that during the dispute, Fowler punched one of the women in the face. The woman collapsed to the ground in a state of unconsciousness. She was taken to Kent General Hospital in Dover immediately after the assault, where it was learned that she had bleeding in her brain. She was airlifted to Christiana Hospital in New Castle County where she is listed in critical condition.

Police say that after the assault, Fowler and the three men fled the scene. A 30-year-old  male camper who witnessed what had happened, chased after Fowler and attempted to detain him. Troopers say Fowler then broke the man's nose and escaped. 

Troopers were able to identify Fowler as the suspect in both assaults and took him into custody at his home in Milford early Saturday morning.
