SEAFORD, Del. – Delaware State Police arrested a Salisbury man after he returned to a residence twice, uninvited and engaged in physical altercations.
Police say the incident occurred on June 11 at approximately 9:04 p.m., when troopers were dispatched to the 900 block of Little Brooke Lane, Seaford, in reference to a domestic related incident.
Upon arrival, troopers met with a female victim who said earlier in the day she and her boyfriend, 40-year-old Jeffrey Davenport assaulted her. Police say it happened in the presence of her three children ranging from ages 6 to 10.
