Delaware state police say the stabbing happened early Sunday morning outside the Mariachi House on Lancaster Pike in Hockessin.

Authorities say a 20-year-old man who was involved in a dispute inside the restaurant was confronted by 24-year-old Giovany A. Reyes, of Bridgeton, after he walked outside.
