Physical altercation leads to felony charges in Milton


MILTON — A 44-year-old Milton man was arrested on felony charges following a physical altercation Saturday night.

Delaware State Police spokeswoman Master Cpl. Heather Pepper said Partor Rios Sanchez allegedly took a kitchen knife and displayed it aggressively to females ages 14 and 47 at a residence on Mulberry Street, authorities said. The sequence began as a verbal argument before escalating, authorities said.

Troopers were called to the scene at approximately 9:09 p.m., Cpl. Pepper said. No injuries were reported.

Mr. Sanchez was charged with possession of a deadly weapon during the commission of a felony, aggravated menacing, endangering the welfare of a child (four counts), and offensive touching.

He was arraigned in Justice of the Peace Court 3 and committed to Sussex Correctional Institution on a $40,100 cash bond.
