Police: Argument over jet skis leads to assault charges for Millsboro man

1280 Grady

MILLSBORO, Del. – Delaware State Police say a Millsboro man was arrested on multiple charges following an altercation on Sunday.

At around 1 p.m., police were called to the beach area on Sandpiper Road, located in the Pot Nets Seaside Mobile Home Park, for a reported fight in progress. It was determined that the suspect, 51-year-old Stephen Gray, was on the beach when the 32-year-old male victim arrived at the beach with his family on jet skits. An argument reportedly broke out between Grady and the victim regarding the jet skis that turned physical when police say Grady grabbed a screwdriver and hit the victim in the face with it after threatening the victim and another 32-year-old male.

The other man then got into the altercation in an attempt to break it up, and both men tried to disarm Grady of the screwdriver but were unsuccessful. During the struggle, Grady stabbed the first victim on the top of the head and cut the second victim on the torso with the screwdriver. Grady then threw the screwdriver in the water prior to police arrival.

The victims and suspect received medical attention for their injuries.

Grady was arrested and charged with possession of a deadly weapon during the commission of a felony, two counts of aggravated menacing, two counts of second degree assault, and disorderly conduct. He was later released on a $28,100 unsecured bond.
