Kent County man charged with threatening juveniles

A Delaware man was charged with aggravated menacing after he allegedly held a BB gun to the head of an 8-year-old child.

Dover police said Raymond Lebeau Jr., 39, was arrested Thursday after officers were called to a home for a disturbance.

Officers located a black BB gun/handgun replica at the scene, Hoffman told the Delaware State News.

Lebeau was also charged with two counts of terroristic threatening. He was released on $5,000 unsecured bond.
