Erica Davis, of Felton, DE – Delaware State Police Department

A Felton woman was arrested after police say she assaulted a State Trooper, kicking him and threatening to spit on him while resisting arrest during an assault on another person who she injured.

According to Delaware State Police, around 11:45 p.m., Wednesday, troopers were called to a home in the 600 block of Plymouth Road in Felton for a reported assault.

Troopers arrived and made contact with a 43-year-old who advised that the suspect, Erica Davis, had entered the home and confronted her, according to police.

Davis, who was angry for unknown reasons, grabbed a kitchen knife and threatened to stab the victim, police said. A witness at the home was able to disarm Davis but she reportedly proceeded to assault the victim, causing minor injury.

Davis exited the residence and allegedly damaged the victim’s vehicle before fleeing the area.

As troopers were on scene conducting the investigation, Davis returned to the home and approached the victim in an aggressive manner, according to police.

Davis reportedly ignored verbal commands given by troopers and when being taken into custody she resisted arrest and injured a Trooper, police said. Once in custody, she threatened to spit on a trooper and proceeded to kick him as she was placed in the police car.

No medical attention was required for the victim or troopers involved.

Davis was charged with Aggravated Menacing, Resisting Arrest with Force, Assault 2nd Degree on Law Enforcement Officer, Assault 3rd Degree, Offensive Touching, and Criminal Mischief. She was committed to the Sussex Correctional Institute in default of $19,300 cash bond.
