MARYDEL, Del. – Delaware State Police arrested a man on aggravated menacing and other related charges Tuesday evening in Marydel.

Troopers say they were called to a residence in the 800 block of Taraila Road for a weapons complaint. On arrival, troopers met with a 28-year-old male who reported that an acquaintance of his, 31-year-old Daniel Reedy Jr. showed up to his residence and threatened him with a handgun.

It was later learned that Reedy was hired by the victim to complete some renovation work and there were a few things that needed to be fixed. When Reedy went to the victim’s residence, the two reportedly got into a verbal altercation, leading Reedy to pull out a handgun and threaten the victim.

The victim was not injured.

Reedy left the area prior to police arrival, but was located at his residence in the 300 block of Lambert Road. He was arrested and charged with possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony, possession of a firearm by a person convicted of a felony within ten years, and aggravated menacing. He was held at SCI on $9,000 secured bond.
