Salisbury Man Arrested For Assaulting Girlfriend in Seaford

Posted: Updated:

SEAFORD, Del. - Delaware State Police arrested a Salisbury man after he returned to a residence twice, uninvited and engaged in physical altercations.

Police say the incident occurred on June 11 at approximately 9:04 p.m., when troopers were dispatched to the 900 block of Little Brooke Lane, Seaford, in reference to a domestic related incident. 

Upon arrival, troopers met with a female victim who said earlier in the day she and her boyfriend, 40-year-old Jeffrey Davenport assaulted her. Police say it happened in the presence of her three children ranging from ages 6 to 10. 

Troopers say Davenport proceeded to leave the residence after this incident and later returned, driving into the victim’s fence and re-entering the residence without permission.

While re-entering the residence, Davenport broke the front screen door and began to argue with the victim and the victim’s mother. Davenport approached the victim’s mother in an aggressive manner and also struck one of the children who was inside the residence at this time.

Police say Davenport left a second time and later returned for a third time when he re-entered the residence without permission again and engaged in a physical altercation with the victim’s ex-husband who was at the residence during this incident.

The victims did not sustain injuries as a result of these incidents.

Davenport proceeded to leave the residence in his silver, Dodge Ram. Troopers noticed the vehicle near the residence and a traffic stop was initiated.

Police made contact with Davenport and noticed an odor of alcohol and he failed to comply with the Trooper’s commands to exit the vehicle. Davenport was subsequently taken into custody.

Davenport was transported back to Troop 3 where a DUI investigation ensued.  Davenport was charged with the following:

  • Burglary Second-Degree (2 counts)
  • Strangulation
  • Assault Third Degree
  • Endangering the Welfare of a Child (3 counts)
  • Resisting Arrest
  • Driving a Vehicle Under the Influence of Alcohol
  • Offensive Touching
  • Menacing
  • Offensive Touching
  • Criminal Mischief

Davenport was arraigned before the Justice of the Peace Court and committed to the Sussex Correctional Institution on $32,900 cash only bond.
