MILLSBORO, Del.- Delaware State Police are searching for a Millsboro man wanted on charges related to a reported domestic incident.

Troopers said 24-year-old Cecil Hicks is wanted on charges including second-degree assault, possession of a deadly weapon during the commission of a felony, aggravated menacing, first-degree reckless endangering, endangering the welfare of a child and criminal mischief. 

According to police, shortly before 8 p.m. Sunday, troopers responded for a reported domestic incident and shots fired at a home located on the 34000 block of Starboard Court in the Rehoboth Shores development.

Police said an investigation revealed Hicks went to the home looking for his 29-year-old girlfriend, and was going to hurt her with a weapon.

When his 12-year-old daughter told Hicks his girlfriend was not at the house, police said he began damaging personal belongings in the house.

Troopers said the 12-year-old was able to escape and found shelter with a friend in the neighborhood.

Troopers said that a short time later, Hicks was seen outside the victim's home arguing with the 29-year-old girlfriend, when she began to run away from Hicks. 

According to troopers, Hicks then pulled out a handgun and began shooting at her while chasing after her. 

Police said the woman was able to get into a vehicle with friends and leave the development, but were physically assaulted before escaping.

Troopers said Hicks also left the area and has not been found since.

According to state police, Hicks should be considered armed and dangerous. 

Anyone with information on Hicks' whereabouts is asked to contact Detective Truitt at (302) 752-3813.  Information may also be provided by calling Delaware Crime Stoppers at 1-800-TIP-3333, via the internet at www.delaware.crimestoppersweb.com, or by sending an anonymous tip by text to 274637 (CRIMES) using the keyword "DSP."

    'Ghost Pots' Hurting Chesapeake Bay's Blue Crab Population

    Crabbing season is well underway, and that means hundreds of thousands of crab pots are in the Chesapeake Bay catching blue crabs.

    Every morning during crabbing season, you can see watermen gathering up their pots, collecting their catch, and putting the pots back in the water. What you cannot see is the problem: pots that have had their lines severed sit on the bay's bottom, sometimes never seen again, along with the crabs inside them.
