Parker Charged with Intentionally Injuring a Law Enforcement Officer

Released from Milford Police Department

On 11/1/11 the Milford Police arrested and charged a 22yo Milford man for an incident that occurred at a residence in the 400 block of Truitt Ave. Raylond J. Parker was charged with Attempting to Remove Firearm from a Law Enforcement Officer, Assault 2nd Degree Intentionally Injuring a Law Enforcement Officer, Felony Resisting Arrest, Criminal Mischief Under $1,000 and Disorderly Conduct. Shortly after midnight on 11/1/11, the Milford Police responded to a residence in the 400 block of Truitt Ave after receiving a call about a disorderly group that may be about to fight. Once there, officers observed Parker yelling profanities while outside the residence. As others present attempted to calm Parker, he became more disorderly and shoved a female family member. At this time an officer attempted to take Parker into custody. As both Parker and the officer walked over to the patrol vehicle, Parker struck the officer knocking the officer to the ground. Parker then attempted to remove the officer’s firearm from his holster. After a struggle, officers were able to subdue Parker and take him into custody. Parker continued being disorderly while at the Milford Police Department and attempted to do damage to property. Parker was later transported and arraigned at JP3. Parker was committed to SCI in default of $17,000 secured bond but while being transported to SCI Parker became disorderly again. Parker continuously banged his head on the steel cage in the back seat of the officer’s patrol vehicle. Parker suffered a severe laceration on his forehead as a result and had to be taken to Milford Bayhealth Hospital for treatment of the injury. Parker was later transported to SCI. The officer involved in the initial incident with Parker suffered injuries to the head, hand, wrist and knees. The officer did not receive medical treatment.
