Felton woman arrested for assaulting police officer, resisting arrest

FELTON, Del. – Delaware State Police arrested a Felton woman late Wednesday night on several charges stemming from an assault investigation.

Troopers responded to a residence in the 600 block of Plymouth Road at around 11:45 p.m. for a reported assault. On arrival, a 43-year-old victim reported that Erica Davis walked into her residence and confronted her. Davis then reportedly grabbed a kitchen knife and threatened to stab the victim. Although a witness at the residence was able to disarm Davis, she still assaulted the victim, causing minor injury. Davis then damaged the victim’s car before fleeing.

While troopers were on scene investigating, Davis came back to the residence and began to approach the victim aggressively. She allegedly ignored verbal commands from troopers and while being taken into custody, Davis began resisting arrest and injured a trooper. After she was taken into custody, she threatened to spit on a trooper and kicked him as he put her into the police car.

Neither the victim nor troopers involved required medical attention.

Davis was charged with aggravated menacing, resisting arrest with force, second degree assault on law enforcement officer, third degree assault, offensive touching, and criminal mischief. She is currently being held at SCI on $19,300 cash bond.
