SEAFORD, Del.- Seaford police say the second of two men wanted connection with the assault of a pregnant woman has turned himself in.

Police said that shortly after midnight Tuesday, officers were dispatched to the parking lot of a restaurant located in the 22000 block of Sussex Highway for a report of a fight. Police said that once officers arrived, it was discovered that a woman, who is pregnant, was assaulted by 23-year-old Stephon Hammond of Greenwood, Del.

 

During the assault, another man, identified as 22-year-old Dewitt Barnhart of Blades, Del., stood by and refused to render aid to the victim when she asked him for help, according to police. Prior to police arrival, both men fled the scene together.

 

Hammond turned himself in and was charged with second-degree assault, second-degree conspiracy and disorderly contact. He was arraigned before Justice of the Peace Court #4 and released after posting $1,550 secured bail.

An arrest warrant was issued for Barnhart for the same charges as Hammond. He turned himself in to police later Tuesday and after being arraigned was released on $1,250 unsecured bail.
