Rehoboth Police Search For Stabbing Suspect
It is a crime that is uncommon for this popular tourist destination. "We do have assaults in Rehoboth but not many involve weapons or stabbings," Lt. Jaime Riddle of the city's police department told WRDE. " We have been fortunate in that manner. However, we are prepared to handle it and are doing so." In 2018, Rehoboth Beach reported 57 assault offenses equaling the number from 2017.
The victim of the Saturday's stabbing was taken to the hospital. His injuries were deemed serious but not life threatening. He was reported in stable condition in the most recent update from the police. Riddle is asking anyone who witnessed the incident or who has information to contact Detective Tyler Whitman at (302) 524-1391. Tips can also be submitted through Delaware Crime Stoppers by calling 1-800-847-3333 or online at http://delaware.crimestoppersweb.com .
