Police: Elderly Woman Tackled In Georgetown, One Charged

A parking violation led to a Georgetown woman being arrested Sunday evening after assaulting an elderly female in the Georgetown Plaza parking lot, according to Detective Joey Melvin.

Melvin said on Sunday, October 13, 2019, at approximately 6:30 p.m., Georgetown Police were dispatched to Georgetown Plaza for an assault complaint. Arriving officers learned that the victim had exited a store and found a vehicle parked along the sidewalk which was blocking the ramp to enter the parking lot.

The victim approached the vehicle and asked if the operator could move to allow her to use the ramp. While speaking with the operator of the vehicle, an unknown female approached the victim and tackled her to the ground, according to Masten. The suspect then left in a vehicle. Witnesses immediately responded to the victim who was subsequently transported to the hospital for non-life-threatening injuries.

Witnesses were able to provide a registration number for a vehicle the suspect was seen leaving in. Officers responded to the address listed on the vehicle registration and were able to identify and take the suspect into custody without incident.

Brianna Dadds, 22 of Georgetown, was arrested for Assault 2nd degree, Disorderly Conduct and committed to Sussex Correctional Institute.
