A 19-year-old New Castle area man was arrested late Sunday after he allegedly threatened to kill his girlfriend, mother and grandmother.
Kareem Rodgers, of the 2600 block of Stonebridge Blvd. was charged with three counts of terroristic threatening, possession of marijuana and possession of a firearm with an obliterated serial number.
He was still awaiting arraignment this morning.
New Castle County police spokesman Cpl. Trinidad Navarro said officers were called to the Rodgers' Stonebridge apartment after he allegedly threatened to kill the three women with a weapon during a domestic dispute.
When officers arrived, Rodgers was walking out of the apartment and was immediately arrested.
An investigation revealed that Rodgers got into a verbal argument with his 18-year-old girlfriend, and later with his grandmother and mother.
During the argument, Rodgers threatened to shoot and kill his girlfriend and his grandmother.
Navarro said the suspect also sent a text message to his mother stating he would kill her too.
When officers executed a search warrant at the apartment, they recovered a small amount of marijuana along with a .32 caliber handgun with an obliterated serial number belonging to Rodgers, Navarro said.
