The Delaware State Police arrested 43-year-old Kathryn Eriksson of Newark, Delaware, for multiple felony criminal charges stemming from a disorderly incident that occurred at a New Castle area bar early this morning.

On October 21, 2023, at approximately 1:11 a.m., troopers were dispatched to Kum-On-Inn located at 249 Christiana Road in New Castle for a report of a disorderly woman with a knife refusing to leave the bar. After arriving at the scene, troopers made contact with the suspect, who was seated at the bar. The suspect, identified as Kathryn Eriksson, was taken into custody without incident after troopers found a folding knife concealed in her pocket. In the ensuing investigation, troopers discovered Eriksson was repeatedly asked to leave due to her demanding service after the bar was closed. Eriksson refused to leave and threatened to kill the bar’s employees while waving a knife that she had pulled from her pocket. One of the employees was able to get away and call 9-1-1. There were no injuries reported.

Eriksson was taken Troop 2, where she was charged with the following crimes:

  • Possession of a Deadly Weapon During the Commission of a Felony (Felony)
  • Aggravated Menacing (Felony)
