Milford Man Arrested on Burglary, Assault Charges

Posted: Updated:

MILFORD, Del.- A Milford man was arrested for burglary and assault Friday afternoon.

Officers were called to a home on the 400 block of South Washington Street for reports of a man banging on doors. While on the way to the scene, officers lost contact with the victim, and it was believed that the man had gained access inside the home, according to the Milford Police Department. 

That man was identified as 43-year-old Courtney Goode. He was found in the backyard of the home when officers arrived. A brief foot chase ensued, but Goode was eventually taken into custody, police said.

According to police, prior to officers arriving, Goode got into a fight with the victim, allegedly repeatedly punching and kicking the victim. The victim advised that Goode also allegedly attempted to take the vicitm's cellphone away to prevent further communication with the police and then fled from the home with it.

Officers observed that Goode had made forcible entry into the downstairs portion of the home and then gained access to the upstairs, police said. 

The victim was transported by ambulance to the hospital for further medical treatment of injuries. 

Goode was committed to the Department of Corrections in default of $9,500 secured bail.  Goode was also given a no contact order with the victim.
