DOVER, Del.- Dover police say a man is facing assault and related charges following a Monday night stabbing that occurred after a party.

Officers said that at around 11 p.m., they responded to a home on the 400 block of East Wind Drive for a loud party and disorderly person.

According to police, the party was ending and Leo Martin, 37, was being loud and arguing with several persons at the party. Friends of Martin told officers that they would bring him in the home and would peacefully resolve the issue, police added.

A few minutes later, officers returned to the home for a 911 call and discovered that Martin had stabbed a 31-year-old male in the stomach two times, police said. According to investigators, the victim became uncooperative with officers and medical personnel on scene and refused medical attention.

The knife used in the stabbing was a switch-blade knife with a 3-and-1/8-inch blade, investigators said.

Martin was charged with possession of a deadly weapon during the commission of a felony, unlawfully dealing with a switchblade and second-degree assault.

Bond information on Martin is not yet available.
