The Newark (Delaware) Police Department says it has arrested Michael J. Creed, 25, of Newark, and charged him with first-degree assault and possession of a deadly weapon during the commission of a felony in connection to the Sunday stabbing of a University of Delaware quarterback, the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

The university is not confirming the identity of the quarterback, but the Inquirer reports that the victim was senior Trevor Sasek. He was stabbed several times in the chest and abdomen during a fight Sunday morning at a parking lot at 54 East Delaware Ave. in Newark, Del., and is in “stable condition” after having surgery, according to the Inquirer.
