A man is charged with felonious assault after allegedly stabbing a woman Thursday at a Middletown residence.

Middletown police officers were called to the 700 block of Dover Avenue shortly after 7 a.m. when a man called dispatchers saying an ambulance was needed.

Officers found the man sitting in a chair beside the garage. When asked who needed an ambulance, the man identified as Austin Creech, said “she does. I stabbed her,” according to the police report.
