The Delaware State Police have arrested 23-year-old David Walker of Newark, Delaware after he assaulted a 69-year-old man and resisted arrest Monday evening.

On July 3, 2023, at approximately 10:01 p.m., troopers and Newport Police Department responded to the Park and Ride located at 1401 Centerville Road in Wilmington after receiving a call about a fight in the parking lot. Troopers and Newport PD found Walker and the victim involved in a physical altercation on the ground. The parties were separated, and it was determined Walker was attempting to steal the victim’s groceries while the victim was waiting for the bus. When Walker attempted to steal the groceries, a brief struggle ensued causing both parties to fall to the ground. The victim sustained minor injuries as a result of the physical altercation. Walker was uncooperative with police and EMS. He refused to be treated for an open cut and flung his blood at the officers. Walker physically resisted while being handcuffed. Walker continued to resist and kicked an officer in the abdomen while being placed into the patrol vehicle. The officer did not sustain any injuries from being kicked.

Walker was taken to Troop 2, where he was charged with the following crimes:

  • Assault Second Degree to a Person Over 62 Years of Age (Felony)
  • Offensive Touching of Law Enforcement – 2 counts
  • Resisting Arrest
  • Criminal Nuisance

Walker was arraigned by Justice of the Peace Court 11 and committed to Howard R Young Correctional Institution on $6,000 cash bond.
