Delaware State Police are looking for a Magnolia man who allegedly threatened a neighbor with a sawed-off shotgun and punched several people in the face, including a 57-year-old woman, during an argument Friday night.

Investigators said suspect Anthony Dollson, 38, shortly before 10:30 p.m. got into a dispute with a 20-year-old male neighbor on the unit block of East Cherry Drive.

During the argument, Dollson allegedly retrieved a sawed-off-shotgun, pointed it at his neighbor, then fled.

Police said Dollson returned to the neighbor’s house a short time later and punched the man in the face, causing a minor injury.

As two women tried to break up the fight, Dollson allegedly punched one woman, 57, and pushed the second woman, 21.

Authorities said he then ran away.

Troopers who responded to the incident said they were able to locate the shotgun, but couldn’t find Dollson.

He is currently wanted for aggravated menacing, possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony, possession of a firearm by a prohibited person and related offenses.

Anyone with information on Dollson’s whereabouts is asked to call 911, to contact Troop 3 at 302-697-4454, or to submit an anonymous tip by texting CRIMES (274637) with the keyword “DSP,” calling Delaware Crime Stoppers at 1-800-TIP-3333, by downloading the Delaware State Police Mobile Crime Tip App or by filling out this online form.
