DOVER, Del.- Delaware State Police are still searching for the 29-year-old man accused of nearly hitting a state trooper while fleeing a traffic stop.

Police spent more than five hours Wednesday at Kentwood Estates in Dover looking for Allen Gantt Jr., but he was nowhere to be found.

Crystal Thomas has lived in Kentwood Estates her whole life but had never seen a scene like Wednesday evening's, when patrol cars and a SWAT team surrounded a mobile home. It turned out that Gannt was not inside the home afterall.  Thomas said and her family are afraid since he is still at-large.

"My daughter knows him, my daughter knows of him," she said. "She's terrified to see even his picture on TV."

Some Kentwood Estates residents say there was confusion as to why they could not enter their surrounding homes but Chris Jolly said he is thankful for the police presence Wednesday night.

"I would have wanted more information from state police but they're just doing their job," he said. "They're protecting the community and there was a quick response to get out here."

Commenting on Wednesday's incident, police said troopers were no sure if Gantt was armed and they needed to take every precaution to keep people safe.
