DOVER — A man accused of stabbing a woman four times outside a Dover bar last summer has been indicted on felony charges.

Jaquan X. Crump was 21 years old at the time of the incident that allegedly began inside Irish Mike’s at 107 W. Loockerman St. before a stabbing outside, Dover Police said. Several people were involved in a verbal altercation that escalated into a stabbing, police said.

The time of the incident was listed as 12:30 a.m. by authorities. Mr. Crump was not immediately located by arriving officers, police said, and he was initially considered at large and wanted.

A 24-year-old woman suffered non-life threatening injuries and was treated at Bayhealth-Kent General Hospital in Dover.

Charges against Mr. Crump include first-degree assault and possession of a deadly weapon during the commission of a felony (a knife).
