SEAFORD, Del.- Seaford police say they have arrested a Georgetown man accused of threatening his mother at knifepoint before taking off in his sister's car. 

Nicholas Davis, 26, is charged with first-degree robbery, possession of a deadly weapon during commission of a felony, strangulation, possession of a deadly weapon by a person prohibited, offensive touching, disorderly conduct and no valid license.

According to police, shortly before 2 p.m. Thursday, Seaford officers responded to a robbery complaint in the 200 block of Front Street. Officers said they met with Davis' mother who told them that her son had been arguing with her and his sister when the argument escalated and Davis became violent and held a knife to her throat and threatened to kill her.

Police said Davis attempted to flee the scene in his sister's car but was taken into custody a short time later. Following his arrest on the aforementioned charges, he was released on $300,000 unsecured bond pending a preliminary hearing.
