NEWARK, Del. -

A Wilmington man was arrested after stabbing his child's mother multiple times Sunday night in a domestic dispute, police say.

Earle D. Moore, 27, faces five criminal charges after allegedly breaking into the victim's apartment on O'Daniel Avenue.

Newark police say Moore kicked in the apartment door just before 6:30 p.m. and, after a struggle, retrieved a knife from the kitchen. Moore's 9-year-old son was also in the apartment. The victim fled to a nearby apartment but was caught by Moore, who proceeded to stab her repeatedly.

Moore fled the scene towards nearby Julie Lane, but police say was captured by responding officers.

According to police, the victim was taken to Christiana hospital where she is facing life-threatening injuries. Their son was uninjured and is in the care of family members.

Moore is facing $181,000 bail.
