D0VER, Del.- A 19-year-old man is facing aggravating menacing and related charges follow accusations that he pointed what appeared to be an assault rifle at two people in Dover after they told him to stop repeatedly honking his horn. 

Delaware State Police said it happened shortly after noon Wednesday on Carlisle Drive in the Carlisle Village of Dover. 

Police said troopers met with a 29-year-old male victim who stated that Daevon C. Stratton was outside of his girlfriend’s home, which is next door to the victim. Stratton was in his vehicle, honking the horn for approximately 30 minutes, according to police.

Troopers said when the male victim and a 27-year-old female victim went outside to ask Stratton to stop honking the horn, Stratton went to the trunk of his vehicle and obtained what appeared to be a black assault rifle. Police said Stratton then pointed the weapon at the victims and threatened them before leaving the scene. There were no reported injuries as a result of the incident. 

Troopers located Stratton a short time later outside of his home in Kentwood Mobile Home Park.  Stratton was taken into custody without incident and found in possession of approximately 9.68 grams of marijuana.

Stratton was transported back to Troop 9 where he was charged with two counts of aggravated menacing and possession of marijuana. 

He was arraigned before the Justice of the Peace Court and released on $10,100 unsecured bond.
