Police have made an arrest in the weekend stabbing of University of Delaware quarterback Trevor Sasek, who remains in stable condition.

Michael Creed, 25, was arrested Monday and charged with first-degree assault and possession of a deadly weapon in the commission of a felony after he allegedly stabbed Sasek, 22, during an argument Sunday around 1 a.m. in Newark, Del.

Creed is seen on surveillance video outside the Main Street Galleria leaning into a car and then coming out as Sasek approached him. Police say Sasek grabbed him by the shoulder, and Creed then reportedly stabbed him multiple times in the chest and abdomen and fled the scene.

Sasek was taken to Christiana Hospital by private vehicle and underwent surgery. He remains in stable condition.

Police were able to track Creed down after obtaining information on the car he was in with help from the surveillance footage.

Sasek, of Limerick, Pa., is a fifth-year senior at the University of Delaware and quarterback of the school's football team. There, the 6-foot-6, 225-pound Sasek has played in 13 games over the last three seasons, with three starts. In 2011, after earning the starting spot in preseason drills, he was sidelined by a knee injury.

The University of Delaware wouldn't confirm Sasek's identity, but did issue a statement on the incident.

"For privacy reasons, we're not confirming the identity of the victim," University of Delaware spokeswoman Andrea Boyle said Monday afternoon. "University officials have been in touch with the injured student and his family, and we wish him a speedy recovery."

Twitter users voiced their support for the injured quarterback.
