On August 28, 2020, a motorist reported to the Menlo Park Police Department that he was involved in a traffic altercation on Sand Hill Road. During the altercation, the driver of the other involved vehicle accessed a firearm from the center-console area of his vehicle and brandished it in a threatening manner. The suspect left prior to officers arriving on the scene.
On September 8, 2020, at approximately 8:41 a.m., a Menlo Park police officer was on patrol in the area of Marsh Road and highway 101 when he observed a vehicle he recognized to be the suspect vehicle from the brandishing case. He effected a traffic stop, and found that the driver of the vehicle, 49-year-old Donald Delvy of Redwood City, was the suspect in the brandishing case. A loaded firearm was found inside Delvy’s vehicle and was collected as evidence. Delvy was subsequently arrested for possession of a concealed firearm (25400(a)(1) PC) and booked into the county jail. The case is being sent to the San Mateo County District Attorney’s Office for prosecution.
Any witnesses to the brandishing incident are asked to contact Detective Russell.
