October 21, 2019

A Georgetown teen faces charges after police say he stabbed someone during a fight Oct. 19.

The fight started at 4:48 p.m. at the BP gas station, 50 Market St., Blades, when Lukas Morrison, 15, argued with three males who said Morrison owed them money, said Master Cpl. Michael Austin of the Delaware State Police.

The altercation escalated and Morrison began fighting with one of the subjects, an 18-year-old male. During the fight, Austin said, Morrison produced a knife and stabbed the subject one time in his lower extremity. The two subjects then separated and both left the scene; the victim responded to an area hospital where he was treated and released for a puncture wound, Austin said.

Morrison was identified as the suspect and taken in to custody at his residence without incident. He was transported to Troop 5 where he was charged with one count each of second-degree assault and possession of a deadly weapon during the commission of a felony. He was arraigned in Justice of the Peace Court 3 and released to a guardian, pending a future court appearance.
