Troopers Arrest Milton Man on Criminal Charges Following Physical Altercation- Milton

Date Posted: Monday, May 3rd, 2021

Milton- Troopers arrest Milton man on criminal charges following a physical altercation Saturday night.

On May 1, 2021, at approximately 9:09 p.m., troopers responded to a residence on Mulberry Street for a physical altercation. The investigation determined a verbal argument between 44-year-old Partor Rios Sanchez of Milton and a 14-year-old female in the residence while cooking in the kitchen. A 47-year-old female acquaintance in the home intervened, and it caused Partor to become extremely aggressive. Partor then took the kitchen knife he was using in the kitchen and aggressively displayed the knife toward the victims, which caused them to be in fear of physical harm. A 12-year-old male stepped between Partor and the female victims and calmed the situation. Partor then took a beer and threw it at the 14-year-old female, and struck the 47-year-old female with his elbow before fleeing the residence before troopers arrived on the scene. The victims did not require medical attention. Later Saturday night, Partor returned to the home, and troopers responded and took him into custody without incident. He was transported to Troop 7, where he was charged with the following crimes: 

  • Possession of a Deadly Weapon During the Commission of a Felony (Felony)
  • Aggravated Menacing (Felony)
  • Four counts- Endangering the Welfare of a Child
  • Offensive Touching

Partor was arraigned in the Justice of the Peace Court #3 and committed to Sussex Correctional Institution on a $40,100.00 cash bond.
