A Durham man has been arrested in connection with a stabbing reported Sunday on Park Avenue in Wilmington.

Joshua Dee Fuller, 25, was arrested in connection with a stabbing reported in the 5800 block of Park Avenue at 7:05 a.m. Sunday, according to Wilmington Police Department Spokeswoman Cathryn Lindsay.

A 31-year-old man reportedly arrived at Cape Fear Memorial Hospital with multiple stab wounds to his back, Lindsay said. Hospital officials then contacted the Wilmington Police Department. The victim is in stable condition.

After an investigation, officers determined the man was stabbed during a fight at a home on Park Avenue. Fuller was arrested and charged with assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill, inflicting serious injury, Lindsay said.

According to jail records, Fuller faces several charges from other law enforcement agencies, including three counts of forgery, four counts of obtaining property by false pretenses, three counts of failure to appear on felonies, four misdemeanor probation violations, three felony probation violations and resist, delay or obstruct public officers.

Fuller was convicted of two felonies–breaking and entering and larceny–as well as five misdemeanors, according to the N.C. Department of Corrections. Prison records indicate Fuller is an absconder from probation.

He was booked at the New Hanover County jail under a $645,000 secured bond.
