Cops: Intervention ends in assault

In an intervention gone horribly wrong, a 32-year-old Chester man stabbed and beat his 23-year-old sister in to unconsciousness in a Delaware hotel room Wednesday after she confronted him about his drug use, according to police. 

The victim returned to a room she was renting at the Fairview Inn on Market Street in New Castle around 2:30 a.m. after getting out of work, Delaware State Police said. Her brother, Mohamed I. Ally, a Chester, Delaware County, resident, was allegedly in the room for unknown reasons and as she walked in, she confronted him about his drug use, police said.

A verbal fight between the two turned physical when Ally punched his sister in the face, stabbed her in the leg with a small pocketknife and then kept punching her until she was knocked out, according to police.

The victim was able to call 911 when she awoke and was taken to an area hospital to be treated for her injuries. Ally was arrested at the hotel and charged with assault, possession of drugs and related offenses. He remains in prison on $27,500 bail, police said.
