Staff WriterDelaware State Trooper, Police & Fire, RSS

Delaware State Police arrested 19-year-old Jordan Morris of Seaford, Delaware, for multiple felony offenses following an assault that occurred last month in Lincoln.

On February 23, 2024, at approximately 12:52 a.m., troopers responded to a residence on the 100 block of Holly Drive East in Lincoln for a report of an assault. Upon arriving, troopers learned that a man, identified as Jordan Morris, struck a 25-year-old Lincoln, Delaware man with a car during an argument. The investigation revealed the victim, and his friends were visiting the victim’s relative at the residence on Holly Drive East. After one of the victim’s friends declined an invitation to hang out with Morris, Morris, and an unknown front passenger, arrived at the residence in a Ford Fusion, yelling and honking the horn. The victim went outside and confronted Morris about the noise, which led to an argument between the victim and the Ford’s occupants. As Morris began driving away, he made statements to the victim about coming back to the residence and killing the victim’s relative. This prompted another argument between the victim and the Ford’s occupants, during which Morris drove towards the victim and struck him with the front of the car. Morris fled in the Ford in an unknown direction. The victim was transported to an area hospital by ambulance for serious injuries.

On March 6, 2024, Morris was taken into custody and transported to Troop 4, where he was charged with the following crimes:

  • Assault First Degree (Felony)
  • Possession of a Deadly Weapon During the Commission of a Felony (Felony)
  • Conspiracy Second Degree (Felony)

Morris was arraigned by Justice of the Peace Court 2 and committed to Sussex Correctional Institution on a $122,000 cash bond.
