**Update-Suspects Identified, One Arrested** Troopers Seek Public’s Help Identifying Subjects

Presented by Public Information Officer Master Corporal Gary E. Fournier

Selbyville – The Delaware State Police have identified and arrested one of the two subjects that made threatening statements at the Americana Bayside Welcome Center.

The incident took place around 2:55 p.m. on Sunday July 3, 2016 when two male subjects entered the Americana Bayside Welcome Center located at 31254 Americana Parkway and made alarming statements to an employee at the desk. As a result, due to heightened security concerns and for the safety of the public, “The Band Perry” who was scheduled to perform at The Freeman Stage at Bayside later that evening, postponed the concert until a later date.

Shortly after the press release was sent out to media outlets and social media platforms, several tips were sent into state police detectives working the case. Dzmitry N. Papou, 35 of Selbyville, contacted troopers and then responded to Troop 4 in Georgetown Monday evening where he turned himself in after learning of the photos through the local media.  He was charged with one count of Terroristic Threatening (Felony) and arraigned at JP3 before being released on $20,000.00 unsecured bond and a no contact order with Americana Bayside.

The second suspect has been identified but has not been arrested. This is an on-going and active investigation and so as to not jeopardize the investigation, specific details will not be released.
