DELMAR, Md.- Police have arrested a Delmar woman in connection to a stabbing that sent a man to the hospital.

Maryland State Police said that on Sunday troopers were called to Peninsula Regional Medical Center to speak with 31-year-old James Parrott, who was the victim of a stabbing.

Investigators said they learned that Parrott and the suspect, 39-year-old Denys A. Powell, were in a relationship and lived together on the 1100 block of East State Street.

Troopers said that during the late morning hours of Sunday, Parrott and Powell began arguing. According to police, during the argument Powell grabbed a kitchen knife and stabbed Parrott in the back as he was preparing to leave.

Police said Parrott left the home and contacted family members for medical assistance before being taken to PRMC, where he was treated for non-life-threatening injuries and released.

Police later arrested Powell on first-degree assault and related charges. She was taken to the Wicomico County Detention Center before being released on $50,000 bond.
