A domestic dispute in New Castle has led to charges against a man police say threatened his girlfriend with a machete.

Delaware State Police arrested 53-year-old David McIntosh on May 16 for aggravated menacing and related charges.

 

On Saturday morning, troopers were called to the Hollywood Motel, 145 S. Dupont Highway, for report of a domestic disturbance.  Upon arrival, police made contact with a 45-year-old female who said she had been arguing with her boyfriend, McIntosh.  She said McIntosh had wielded a machete while threatening to kill her. 

Police say McIntosh eventually put the machete down and left the room.  The victim was not injured as a result of this incident.

 

Their investigation revealed that McIntosh was in violation of a no unlawful contact order with the victim. McIntosh was taken into custody in the area of the motel without incident.  He was transported back to Troop 2 where he was charged with the following:

  • Possession of a Deadly Weapon During the Commission of a Felony
  • Aggravated Menacing (Felony)
  • Terroristic Threatening
  • Breach of Release

 

McIntosh was arraigned before the Justice of the Peace Court and committed to the Howard R. Young Correctional Institution on $19100.00 secured bond.
