Delaware State Police have arrested 39-year-old Dimitri Taylor of Wilmington, DE for felony assault following an investigation that began on Tuesday morning.

On April 18, 2023, at approximately 10:05 a.m., troopers responded to a medical complex located at 700 Prides Crossing, Newark regarding an assault. The ensuing investigation revealed that a 71-year-old male victim and Dimitri Taylor attempted to pull into the same parking spot at that location.
