    A man is in the hospital while another is in custody after a road rage incident led to a stabbing outside a gas station in Collingdale Tuesday afternoon.

    Police tell NBC10 that 34-year-old Stanley Williams of Philadelphia was driving along the 300 block of MacDade Boulevard when another driver cut him off. Williams and the man then began to argue at a nearby Sunoco Gas Station, according to investigators.

    Williams left the gas station and then returned in his wife's silver Lexus while she sat on the passenger side, according to officials. He then allegedly took out a knife and stabbed the victim in the arm.

    "He decided to come back which now makes him the aggressor," said Collingdale Police Chief Robert Adams.

    Responding officers said they spotted Williams driving the Lexus away from the scene and turning left onto Staley Avenue, which is a dead end.

    A Darby Police Officer then found the Lexus parked on Staley Avenue while it was still running, according to investigators. The officer said he then spotted Williams and his wife walking away from the car. They were both detained by responding police officers.

    Investigators said they found blood on the side rear door of Williams’ car and front right tire. They also said the windshield was smashed.

    Williams was taken into custody after a witness identified him as the man who stabbed the victim, according to police. The suspect was arraigned Wednesday morning and is being held on $200,000 bail. If bail is posted and Williams is release, he will be required to wear a home monitor, authorities said.

     

    Williams' wife was not charged.

    The victim, a Darby resident, was taken to the Delaware County Hospital and treated for a stab wound to the left arm. He is currently in stable condition.
