DOVER, Del.- A Dover man was arrested on weapons charges after waving what appeared to be a firearm at a group of people Tuesday night.

It happened around 8:40 p.m. near South Bradford and Loockerman streets, according to Dover police.

According to witnesses, Dareus Anderson, 30, had been arguing with people in the area and motioned toward his waistband while making threats about a gun. 

Officers found Anderson and discovered that he had a BB gun tucked into his waistband, police said. A further search revealed a 7 inch butcher knife in his backpack, according to police. 

Anderson was taken into custody and charged with carrying a concealed deadly weapon, possession of a deadly weapon by a person prohibited and disorderly conduct. He has not been arraigned and was hospitalized shortly after arrest for an unrelated issue, police said.
