The Newark Police Department has charged 63 people with violating the city’s Unlawful Social Gathering ordinance following three separate incidents late last night and early today.

The University of Delaware Police Department assisted Newark Police at all three locations and referred any students for possible sanctions through UD.

All three incidents were about loud music and were in areas popular for student rentals.

About eight minutes before midnight today, city police found 30 to 40 people in and outside a residence in the unit block of New London Avenue. Some fled upon sight of the officers. Officers cited 18 people for violating the social gathering ordinance, and were all released to appear in Newark Alderman’s Court at a later date.

About three minutes before midnight today, police found more than 12 people inside an apartment in the 600 block of Lehigh Road. Some fled the apartment by climbing out windows upon sight of the officers. Officers cited 12 people for violating the social gathering ordinance, and were all released to appear in Newark Alderman’s Court at a later date. Google Maps shows Studio Green and Lehigh Flats apartments on that block.

About 1:18 this morning, police found “numerous” people inside a residence in the unit block of South Chapel Street. Officers cited 33 people for violating the social gathering ordinance, and were all released to appear in Newark Alderman’s Court at a later date.

The ordinance, which applies throughout the city, is a stricter rule than the governor’s state of emergency to control the spread of COVID-19. It limits inside gatherings to 12 people who don’t live at that residence and outside gatherings to 20. Children 16 and younger aren’t included.

Newark Police is adding extra patrols this weekend in anticipation of Halloween.
