Lewes, DE – Troopers have arrested a Millsboro man after a physical domestic complaint with his ex-girlfriend.

The incident occurred at approximately 4:40 p.m. Friday, June 3, 2016 as a 9-1-1 call was received from a 38 year old female reporting she had been in an altercation with her ex-boyfriend, John C. Atkins, 46 of Millsboro. Troopers then responded to a residence in the 18,000 block of Evelynton Road, Lewes.

The preliminary investigation determined that Atkins was given permission by the victim to remove property from her residence. When the victim arrived at her residence she observed Atkins had removed other items and an argument ensued. The victim jumped into Atkin’s truck and began striking property in his vehicle in attempt to damage it. The domestic became physical outside of the vehicle as Atkins pushed the victim against her vehicle. Atkins then kicked the victim’s vehicle causing damage before leaving in his vehicle.

John C. Atkins responded to Troop 7 in Lewes and was charged with Offensive Touching and Criminal Mischief. He was arraigned at the Justice of the Peace Court 2 and was released on $1000.00 unsecure bond. (no photo available at this time)
