Smyrna Man Arrested for Assaulting Passenger in Moving Vehicle

Posted: Updated:

SMYRNA, Del. - Smyrna Police arrested 21-year old Delquan Shakir of Smyrna after he was seen assaulting a female passenger in his moving car. The traffic stop was made late Friday night just after 11 p.m. A Smyrna police officer observed a car on South Carter Road, which had it's passenger door open, as the passenger appeared to be "attempting to get out of the moving vehicle." 

After a traffic stop was made, police determined that a "physical altercation" was occurring inside the car, when the stop was made. At the time of his detention, Shakir provided police with a false name in an attempt to conceal his identity. A search of the car revealed that Shakir was in possession of marijuana packaged for sale, as well as illegal controlled prescription drugs. 

Shakir was transported to the Smyrna Police Department where his identity was confirmed.  It was also learned that Shakir was wanted by the Dover Police Department for shoplifting, as well as on several Delaware court capiases. Shakir was further found to be wanted by the Delaware County Sherriff’s Office in Pennsylvania for failing to appear for trial on drug dealing related charges. 

Smyrna Police charged Shakir with Possession with intent to deliver a controlled substance, Assault 3rd degree, Criminal Impersonation, Possession of a controlled substance, and driving while suspended/revoked. Shakir was presented before JP#7 via video court on his SPD charges as well as his Dover PD warrant.  Mr. Shakir was committed to the Dept. of Corrections in lieu of $106,550 cash only bond for his SPD charges and capiases and $500 secured bond for his Dover PD charge.

Shakir has a pending extradition hearing for his fugitive status in the state of Pennsylvania.
