SALISBURY, Md. – A Salisbury man is behind bars after he allegedly hit a parked car and fled the scene early Thursday morning.

We’re told deputies with the Wicomico County Sheriff’s Office responded to the 100 block of May Drive at around 1 a.m. after receiving a report of a vehicle collision. The victim reported that a vehicle hit his parked car and the driver tried to flee on foot. The victim tried to have the suspect wait for police, at which point the two got into a scuffle, at which point the suspect/driver reportedly pulled a knife from his waistband.

The suspect, identified as 27-year-old Dionte Polk, was able to escape as police arrived on scene, however he was found hiding in the area. He was subsequently arrested and charged with first degree assault, reckless endangerment, driving while suspended, failure to remain at the scene of an accident, and other traffic charges.

Polk was held without bond.
