DOVER — A 41-year-old Dover man was charged with first-degree burglary following a Friday incident in the unit block of North Kirkwood Street, according to authorities.

At approximately 7:03 p.m., Winston Williams allegedly went to a home and entered the driver’s seat of a resident’s vehicle parked in the driveway and demanded a ride, Dover police spokesman Sgt. Mark Hoffman said.

Police said Mr. Williams attempted to pull a resident into the vehicle during a struggle, then exited the vehicle and ran inside the residence, as a struggle continued in the foyer area.

Mr. Williams was taken into custody by arriving officers, police said. Police said a resident suffered a minor injury to the forehead but refused medical treatment. Mr. Williams was treated at a nearby hospital for being under the influence of PCP, according to authorities.

Mr. Williams was also charged with second-degree unlawful imprisonment (two counts), third-degree assault and offensive touching. He was committed to Sussex Correctional Institution, Georgetown, on a $11,600 secured bond.
