November 9, 2020

A Millsboro woman faces charges after police say she threatened another woman with a box cutter Nov. 7.

Krista M. Gdowik, 32, was at the Sea Esta II Motel at 100 Rudder Lane at about 9 p.m. when she approached a woman, 25, who was talking to a 34-year-old Millsboro man, said Master Cpl. Heather Pepper of the Delaware State Police.

As the two were talking, Pepper said, Gdowik approached the woman with a black box cutter in her hand and dropped it before striking her. Gdowik fled the scene and the woman called 911 to report the incident. When the 34-year-old man learned the woman called the police, Pepper said, he became upset and approached the woman’s 25-year-old boyfriend, who was standing outside, waiting for troopers to arrive. The 34-year-old punched the boyfriend with a closed fist, but neither victim required medical treatment.

Gdowik was located at the Boys & Girls Club located in Oak Orchard and transported to Troop 7, where she was charged with possession of a deadly weapon during the commission of a felony, aggravated menacing, offensive touching, and disorderly conduct. She was arraigned at Justice of the Peace Court 3 and released on a $22,200 secured bond.
