Rehoboth Beach Police are searching for a man they say stabbed a Milton teen June 1 on the Boardwalk in Rehoboth Beach.

A witness took cell phone photos of the incident that happened at 10 p.m. on the Boardwalk near Wilmington Avenue, said Lt. Jaime Riddle of the Rehoboth Beach Police Department.

Riddle said several men were arguing when one of them took out a knife and stabbed an 18-year- old in the left side of his body. The suspect and three others then fled west on Wilmington Avenue, Riddle said.

The suspect was wearing a gray New Balance sweatshirt, gray sweatpants, a backpack, and dark-colored athletic shoes.

The male victim sustained serious, but non-life threatening injuries: he was taken to the hospital where he remains in stable condition, Riddle said.
