SEAFORD, Del.- The Delaware State Police are asking for help in locating a man wanted in connection with a domestic assault.

The incident took place on Wednesday, Oct 5 at around 11:30 p.m. Troopers were called to the Nanticoke Memorial Hospital in Seaford in response to a domestic assault. Troopers say the victim received a gash to his upper torso after, officers say, a physical altercation had occurred in the 24,000 block of King Road, in Seaford.

The suspect, Leslie Williams, of Seaford, confronted the victim over him allegedly contacting Williams girlfriend. During the altercation the suspect assaulted the victim and then fled from the scene. The victim was able to get a hold of relative who then drove him to the Nanticoke Memorial Hospital.
