One man suffered a stab wound and another is in prison following an argument between neighbors that turned violent.

Officers responded to a residence in the 100 block of West 23rd Street at approximately 9:15 p.m. on Tuesday night after receiving a 911 call reporting a stabbing. Arriving officers located the victim, a 27 year old male, suffering from a stab wound to the upper left back. An investigation determined that the victim and defendant, Stanley Jones, had engaged in an argument in the alleyway of their adjoining residences. The argument turned violent, and Stanley Jones stabbed the victim in the back before fleeing into his own residence.

Officers took Stanley Jones into custody at his residence without incident. The victim was transported to Christiana Hospital via ambulance where he was listed in stable condition.

Jones was arraigned at Justice of the Peace Court 20 and committed to Howard R. Young Correctional Institution in lieu of a $4,000 secured bond.
