DOVER — A Milford man was indicted on first- and second-degree rape charges last week after an alleged incident at a hotel on May 7, according to court papers.

Justin Fletcher was 19 years old when arrested after the alleged sexual assault at the Days Inn at 699 N. DuPont Boulevard in Milford, police said at the time. Police said the incident took place in the kitchen area of the hotel.

Other recent indictments by a grand jury in Kent County Superior Court included, among others:

• Nykia C. Jones, 22 at the time, was charged with first-degree assault after an alleged attack with a box cutter on Dec. 12, 2016.

Dover Police said a 26-year-old woman was injured during a fight in the 300 block of N. Governors Avenue and needed emergency surgery. She was then reportedly in stable condition with her injuries.

Police said Ms. Jones turned herself in shortly after the incident at 11:11 a.m.

Other charges include possession of a deadly weapon during the commission of a felony and disorderly conduct.

Kevin M. Kosky

Andrew O. Kosky

• Brothers Kevin M. Kosky, of Dover, and Andrew O. Kosky, of Clayton, were listed in two indictments connected to a string of Dover area burglaries in April.

Police initially said that five burglaries were committed between April 5 and April 11, and the indictments listed several other incidents as well. Investigation found that several stolen items had been sold to pawn shops for cash.

Multiple counts of theft, second-degree conspiracy and criminal mischief were included in the indictments.

Jamar Waters

• Jamar L. Waters, whose last known address was in Middletown, was re-indicted on two first-degree robbery counts from Dover area incidents on June 6, 2016.

Dover Police said one robbery was reported at US Gas, and involved two men — one armed with a handgun — entering the business at 461 N. DuPont Highway and demanding money from the employees. The suspects exited with an undisclosed amount of cash.

One suspect was apprehended a short time after the robbery, and Mr. Waters was later taken into custody.

Mr. Waters, age 29 at the time, was also charged with possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony, possession of a firearm by person prohibited, and second-degree conspiracy.

Brian K. May

• Brian K. May, of Milford, was indicted on a first-degree robbery count after an incident at a Wawa at 902 N. DuPont Highway in Milford on April 12.

The incident unfolded at approximately 10:30 a.m. when a suspect entered the store and asked for cigarettes, then asked for all the money in the cash register while supposedly indicating to a clerk that he was armed, Milford Police said. The suspect fled with an undisclosed amount of money and began removing clothes while running from the business.

Mr. May was stopped several minutes later by patrol units and then taken into custody.

Mr. May was also charged with wearing a disguise during the commission of a felony.
