Troopers Arrest Dover Woman for Aggravated Menacing and Terroristic Threatening

Delaware State Police arrested 43-year-old Jennifer Neil of Dover, Delaware, for aggravated menacing and terroristic threatening following an incident that occurred early Saturday morning in Dover.

On February 17, 2024, at approximately 1:10 a.m., troopers responded to a residence on Diemidio Drive, Dover, for a conflict between neighbors. Upon arriving, troopers made contact with the victim and learned that his neighbor, identified as Jennifer Neil, unplugged a power cord he was using and began taking the cord into her house. The victim grabbed the other end of the cord to stop her, at which point Neil turned towards him with a pair of scissors raised in a stabbing motion and made statements about killing him. The victim immediately went into his house to get away from Neil and to contact the police. Troopers were unable to make contact with Neil at her residence and obtained a warrant for her arrest. A computer inquiry revealed Neil also had a capias for her arrest issued by the Kent County Court of Common Pleas.
