DOVER, Del.- Authorities say two people are facing charges following a Monday night stabbing that left a woman hospitalized in Dover.

Dover police said that shortly before 7 p.m., officers were called to the Woodcrest Apartments on Woodcrest Drive where they met with a 22-year-old female victim who had a stab wound to her head. According to police, the victim stated that she was involved in an argument with Precious Dorsey, 18, of Newark, and Marculus Carter, 28, of Felton, when Carter stabbed her with a steak knife.

The female victim was transported to Bayhealth Kent General Hospital where she underwent immediate surgery and is now listed in stable condition, police said. Officers said they then contacted Carter, who had a cut to the face.

According to police, Carter claimed that he was stabbed/cut with a steak knife by Dorsey in retaliation for his stabbing of the female victim. Carter was treated at Bayhealth Kent General hospital for his injuries and later released.

Carter was charged with first-degree assault, criminal mischief and possession of deadly weapon during commission of a felony.  Dorsey was charged with second-degree assault degree. She is also facing robbery charges stemming from an active warrant from New Castle County Police, investigators said.

Bond information on Carter and Dorsey is not yet available.
