Troopers Arrest Newark Woman for Assault – Bear

Date Posted: Sunday, August 25th, 2019

Bear – The Delaware State Police have charged 19 year old Jada Blake of Newark, with multiple offenses including felony assault, stemming from an altercation that took place in the drive-thru lane of a Bear area restaurant.

The incident occurred at approximately 3:40 p.m., Saturday, August 24, 2019 in the drive thru lane of the Chik-fil-a, located at 1101 Quintillo Dr., Bear. Blake was the operator of a vehicle that was waiting in the drive-thru lane when another vehicle, operated by a 21 year old female, attempted to pull in front of her. Blake accelerated abruptly and blocked the vehicle from moving forward, then exited her vehicle and confronted the other driver. Upon making contact with the other driver Blake began striking her in the head and face through her open window. The altercation then continued outside the vehicle at which time Blake intentionally kicked the victim in the abdomen, knowing that the victim was pregnant. After the altercation Blake returned to her vehicle and continued to wait for drive-thru service.

Responding Troopers located Blake still in the drive-thru lane and took her in to custody without incident. The female victim was transported to an area hospital for non-life threatening injuries and for evaluation.

  • Assault 2nd Degree
  • Reckless Endangering 2nd Degree
