The Delaware State Police have arrested 23-year-old Davion West of Millsboro, Delaware for multiple felony charges stemming from a domestic incident in Millsboro followed by a burglary in Milton early this morning.

On September 22, 2023, at approximately 1:40 a.m., troopers responded to a residence on the 25000 block of River Bend Road, Millsboro, for a report of a stabbing. Troopers arrived at the scene and made contact with the 20-year-old victim, who declined treatment for her injuries. Troopers learned that the victim’s partner, identified as Davion West, entered a bedroom occupied by the sleeping victim and their 9-month-old baby. West woke the victim up, and during the subsequent argument, stabbed her in the leg with a knife. West then fled the scene in a red Mazda 3 that he stole from the residence. A trooper searching the area for West observed the Mazda traveling on Harbeson Road in the area of Carpenter Road. The trooper initiated a traffic stop, however the Mazda continued to flee at a high rate of speed, until it lost control and crashed on private property. West abandoned the disabled Mazda and fled on foot through a cornfield. As troopers continued to canvas the area for West, they received reports of a subject trespassing and unlawfully entering a garage of a residence on Shingle Point Road in Milton.
