SEAFORD, Del. - A Seaford, Delaware man wanted by Delaware State Police for a domestic-related assault is in police custody.

DSP Sgt. Richard Bratz said Tuesday night that 51-year-old Leslie Williams was arrested earlier that day at a home in Seaford. He was transported to Troop 4 in Georgetown without incident, Bratz said.

Bratz said that on Wednesday, Oct. 5, troopers were dispatched to the Nanticoke Memorial Hospital in Seaford for a domestic assault. Troopers contacted the male victim in the emergency room who suffered an injury in the form of a laceration to his upper torso, Bratz said. The investigation revealed a physical altercation occurred between the victim and Williams, and Williams allegedly assaulted the victim. Bratz said the victim was able to respond to a relative's home who drove him to the hospital.

Williams was charged with first-degree assault, possession of a deadly weapon during the commission of a felony, and breech of release. He was committed to the Sussex Correctional Institute in default of $60,200 cash bond, Bratz said.
