A Lincoln man faces attempted murder and other charges after police found him during a patrol of an Angola-area neighborhood Nov. 2.

Police were called at 7:48 p.m. to the Rehoboth Bay development by someone concerned over a suspicious woman walking on C Street, said Master Cpl. Heather Pepper of the Delaware State Police.

The woman, 54, was searched and police found drug paraphernalia on her; when they went to a home on B Street to confirm her identity, Pepper said, they saw a man who tried to flee inside the home after police identified themselves. Police took Otis E. Williams, 34, into custody without incident, and found about 5 grams of methamphetamine and $126 on him, Pepper said.

Police learned that Williams was wanted by Laurel police in connection with charges of first-degree attempted murder, first-degree robbery, first-degree assault, and weapon offenses. Delaware State Police charged him with drug and resisting arrest charges in his latest arrest. He was arraigned at Justice of the Peace Court 3 and committed to Sussex Correctional Institution in default of $934,000 cash bond.

The 54-year-old woman was issued a criminal summons for possession of drug paraphernalia and released. Also located at the residence during the investigation was a 43-year-old Rehoboth Beach man who provided a fictitious name and was in possession of drug paraphernalia. A computer search revealed the male had an active capias for violation of probation. He was charged with criminal impersonation and possession of drug paraphernalia, and committed to SCI for his violation of probation, and also issued a $1,000 unsecured bond.
