MILTON, Del.- Milton police have arrested a New Jersey man accused of stabbing his ex-girlfriend multiple times, leaving her hospitalized. The incident prompted a lockdown at a school located a half a block way from where the incident occurred.
 
Tyrone Majette, 42, of Jersey City, N.J., is charged with attempted murder, robbery, possession of a deadly weapon during commission of felony, burglary, possession of deadly weapon by person prohibited, tampering with physical evidence, assault, theft and disorderly conduct.
 
Police said the stabbing occurred at approximately 12:30 p.m. Thursday, when Majette entered his ex-girlfriend's place of work and got into an argument with her over money.

Authorities said the argument turned physical and Majette punched the victim in the head, knocking her down to the ground. Police said that while the victim was on the ground bleeding from the head, Majette fled into a nearby shed and armed himself with a 10-inch knife.
 
The victim, who reportedly attempted to escape, ran off to a nearby vehicle on Union Street where she got into the backseat. However, police said Majette was able to get into the front seat of the vehicle and began stabbing the victim multiple times in the torso and neck region.

The victim was taken to Beebe Medical Center by Milton EMS where she underwent emergency surgery.

Police located Majette and took him into custody on the aforementioned charges. He was ordered held in the Sussex Correctional Institution in lieu of $107,600 cash bond. 

The incident prompted the nearby H.O. Brittingham Elementary School to be placed on lockdown as a precautionary measure.

Police said the victim is recovering at Beebe.
