CAMDEN, Del. - Delaware State Police have arrested a Federalsburg, Maryland man in connection with a robbery and stabbing of a Georgetown man that happened back in August.

Police say the incident happened around 10:30 p.m. on August 24, 2015. Police say the Kent County Emergency Operations Center received a call from a passerby about a man standing in the area of Upper King Road and Main Streets in Woodside, reporting that he had been stabbed. Police say troopers and Emergency Medical Services responded to the area and found a 47-year-old male with a stab wound to his left shoulder. He was transported shortly thereafter by EMS to a local hospital where he was treated for the non-life-threatening injury, according to police.

The investigation revealed the 47-year-old Georgetown man received a ride from Federalsburg, Maryland to the Dover area by another man, whom he could not identify by name, police say. While in the area of South DuPont Highway and Thomas Harmon Drive, the driver requested $5 from the victim, but when the victim refused to pay, police say the man stabbed him once before taking money from his wallet. Police say the suspect continued driving until they were in the area of Upper King Road and Main Street in Woodside, then told the victim to get out of the car. He then drove off, according to police.

Through further investigative, detectives were able to link Thomas A. Lumpkin, 57, with the stabbing and robbery. On Wednesday November 11, 2015 he was arrested by Federalsburg Police Department as a fugitive and transported back to Delaware on November 19th where he was charged with first-degree robber, first-degree assault, and possession of a deadly weapon during the commission of a felony, police say. He was committed to Sussex Correctional Institution on $60,000 secured bond.
