On June 10, 2020, at approximately 12:37 a.m., Troopers were dispatched to the 27000 block of Hollyhock Lane, Seaford, for a physical domestic. Through the investigation, Troopers learned Wescott’s ex-girlfriend, a 26-year-old female victim was asleep in her residence with her two children and another 19-year female family member when there was a loud noise at the kitchen door. Upon investigation, the victim observed Wescott had broken into the residence and was now inside.

The victim then ran back into the bedroom, at which point Wescott grabbed her by the neck and resulting in her not being able to breathe. Wescott then fled the area before police arrived.
