Convicted Felon Arrested On Resisting Arrest And Weapons Charges

Posted: Updated:

DOVER, Del. - An argument, allegedly over money, sends a Philadelphia man running from State Police.

According to the Delaware State Police on Thursday afternoon, 24-year-old Keith Denmark and his girlfriend were riding in the back seat of a car, leaving a store, when they apparently started to argue over money. Police say that the argument turned physical, with Denmark hitting the 24-year-old victim in the head. The driver then stopped the car, and Denmark pulled the victim out of the car, pinned her to the ground, and took her cell phone before running towards the back of the nearby building.

The 9-1-1 Center told Troopers in route that the suspect could be armed. He was soon spotted by officials just south of the store. Troopers say they started to chase him, when he took off his jacket and ran. As the Troopers chased him, they say he took a .45 caliber handgun out of his waistband, and placed it under a car, before continuing to run, but they quickly caught and arrested him.

Police say that the gun had been reported stolen in August of 2010 to the Atlanta Police Department. Denmark is a convicted felon out of Pennsylvania, and isn't allowed to have firearms or ammunition.

Denmark was charged with 2nd degree robbery, possession of a deadly weapon by a person prohibited, carrying a concealed deadly weapon, resisting arrested, and other related offences. He is being held at James T. Vaughn Correctional Center on $67,000.00 bond. The 24-year-old victim refused medical attention.
