Posted: Updated:

FELTON, Del. - Police are investigating a stabbing in Felton they believe may have been the result of a road rage incident.

According to Delaware State Police, troopers and EMS were called to the 10000 block of South DuPont Highway around 2:30 p.m. Sunday.

When police arrived they learned that a 36-year-old Wilmington woman (the victim) was riding as a passenger in a car when another car pulled up alongside them at the light at South DuPont Highway southbound and Evans Road. Police said the woman driving one of the cars and a woman who was a passenger in the other car exchanged profanities and unpleasant hand gestures while at the red light.

Police said a female passenger of the car that had pulled up second then got out of the car and made her way to the victim's door. The woman then assaulted the victim as she got out of her car, according to police. During the confrontation, police said the driver of the suspect car got out and stabbed the victim in the upper torso.

The three women then got back into their cars and drove off, southbound on US13. Police said when the victim noticed she had been stabbed, her daughter pulled into a home in the 10000 block of South DuPont Highway and called 911. The woman was taken by EMS to a local hospital and admitted in stable condition, according to police.

Further investigation revealed the incident may have started in the area of US13 southbound near Voshells Mill Road when the suspect vehicle began following the victim's vehicle and honking its horn and flashing its lights while traveling in the left lane.

The suspects were only described as two black females. Police said the driver is approximately 50 to 60 years old, while the passenger is between 20 and 30. Varying descriptions of the suspect vehicle were given, but it may have been a gray Toyota Corolla.
