Police: Man Charged With Stabbing Woman In Newark Friday Morning

Newark Police have released details surrounding a story that only First State Update told you about on Friday.

On Friday morning, at about 9:50, Newark Police responded to a room at the Red Roof Inn, 1119 South College Avenue, for a report of a stabbing, according to Lt. Andrew Rubin.

Rubin said arriving officers located a woman suffering from stab wounds to the chest and leg. She was treated at the scene by EMS personnel and transported to an area hospital suffering from serious injuries. She is currently in stable condition at the time of this release.

An investigation at the scene determined that the victim was staying in a room at the hotel with her boyfriend. An argument occurred between the victim’s boyfriend and another hotel resident, later identified as Raymond Glock, 56, of Newark. Glock entered the victim’s unsecured room armed with two knives and confronted the victim’s boyfriend. The victim got in between her boyfriend and Glock in an attempt to separate them. Glock pushed the victim to the ground and stabbed her in the chest and leg said Rubin. Glock then broke a window before fleeing the room.

Arriving officers located Glock in his room and found he was suffering from lacerations resulting from breaking the window. He was transported to an area hospital for treatment and later released to Newark Police custody. Two large knives were seized from the room.

Glock was transported to Newark Police headquarters where he was charged with:

Possession of a Deadly Weapon During the Commission of a Felony (2 counts)
Burglary First Degree
Assault Second Degree
Criminal Mischief

Glock appeared before Justice of the Peace Court #2 by video and was ordered to be held in default of $65,500 secured bail. He was turned over to the custody of the Howard R. Young Correctional Institution in Wilmington.
