Man Arrested at Dover Library as City Officials Mull Armed Security

Posted: Updated:

DOVER, Del. --- A man was arrested after an altercation at the Dover Public Library last week, city police said.

Cpl. Mark Hoffman, a city police spokesman, said the man allegedly struck another person on the head and then fled the library after the victim notified a police cadet on duty.

The man, Hoffman said, was arrested shortly thereafter. The victim, he said, knew the suspect and did not want to push for prosecution.

The suspect was ultimately charged with disorderly conduct, Hoffman said.

The arrest comes at a time when the city is considering armed security at the library.

City officials are expected to discuss the issue of armed security at the library next week.
