MILFORD, Del.- A Milford man is behind bars following accusations that he stabbed another man multiple times during a weekend attempted robbery. 

Robert D. Wilhelm Jr. is charged with first-degree attempted robbery, first-degree assault, possession of a deadly weapon during the commission of a felony, possession of a deadly weapon by a person prohibited and second-degree conspiracy.

Milford police said Wilhelm's arrest stemmed from an incident that happened shortly before 10 p.m. Sunday, when Wilhelm went to the South Walnut Street home of the 58-year-old victim. Police said that while there, Wilhelm and an unknown man demanded money from the victim as they threw him to the floor and began kicking him. 

Police said the victim attempted to fight back and refused to provide money to Wilhelm and the other suspect. That is when, according to police, that Wilhelm pulled out a large knife and stabbed the victim in the torso, neck and face.

Both Wilhelm and the other suspect then ran out of the home and fled the scene, investigators said. A short time later, the Milford Police K9 Division tracked and located Wilhelm at the nearby Mispillion Apartment Complex. 

Police said the victim was initially transported to Milford Bayhealth Hospital but was later transported and admitted to Christiana Care Hospital.

Authorities said the victim is listed in stable condition, suffering non-life threatening injuries to the face, neck, torso and head.

Wilhelm was arraigned on the aforementioned charges and ordered held in default of $154,000 secured bond.
