A man who allegedly pulled a gun and threatened pro-life demonstrators outside a Planned Parenthood abortion clinic in Dover, Delaware was arrested by police Aug. 21.
Jerome Aniska, a 31-year-old Wilmington man, engaged with the protesters on a public sidewalk Friday morning outside the Dover clinic. An argument took place.
"During this argument, Aniska pulled out a black handgun and made a threatening statement to the group," the Dover Police Department said.
Police received calls about the incident before 10 a.m. Witnesses said the man went to his vehicle's trunk before the police officers arrived. Investigating police found an empty holster in Aniska's car and a black 9 mm handgun in his car's trunk, the Delaware News Journal reports.
