Leeron Sabb

Leeron Sabb, 55, faces several offenses stemming from the incident that occurred Friday, July 27 in the 20000 block of Donovans Road, state police spokesman Master Cpl. Melissa Jaffe said.

A 26-year-old woman told police that Leeron Sabb pulled into the driveway and began arguing with his 19-year-old nephew and a 37-year-old Georgetown man.

The woman told state police while she was tending to the 37-year-old man, Leeron Sabb aggressively came toward them and a struggle ensued.  While the woman was on the ground, the 19-year-old man grabbed her by the neck with both of his hands, Cpl. Jaffe said.

Investigation revealed Sabb walked across the street to his residence, got a shotgun and subsequently aimed the shotgun at the 37-year-old man, threatening to shoot him, Cpl. Jaffe said.

Troopers learned that Sabb is prohibited from possessing a firearm or ammunition due to a prior violent felony.  Sabb was charged with possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony, possession of a firearm or ammunition by a person prohibited, aggravated menacing, possession of a deadly weapon by a person prohibited, terroristic threatening and possession of a firearm while under the influence.

Sabb was arraigned before the Justice of the Peace Court 3 and committed to the Sussex Correctional Institution on $81,000 cash only bond.

State police also arrested the 19-year-old man on a charge of offensive touching. He was arraigned before the Justice of the Peace Court 3 and released, Cpl. Jaffe said.
