Man arrested after being stabbed

ALLENTOWN, Pa. -

A man is facing felony drug charges after he was stabbed in Allentown and officials discovered drugs tied to his body, according to police.

Assistant Chief Joe Hanna said the stabbing occurred around 3:30am Saturday in the 300 block of Ridge Avenue.

Police said Leevon Jermaine Riddick, 25, was stabbed.  Officials said Riddick was not very cooperative with police during the investigation.

As the medical staff was treating Riddick, they discovered a baggie filled with an off-white rock like substance later determined to be crack cocaine tied to his genitals, police said.

Riddick will be arraigned Saturday afternoon on charges of possession with intent to deliver a controlled substance and possession of crack cocaine, Hanna said.
