MILFORD — A Delaware State Police trooper suffered a minor injury while taking a 27-year-old Dover man into custody Sunday, spokesman Senior Cpl. Jason Hatchell said.

The trooper was injured during a confrontation with Dashawn Toles at approximately 12:20 a.m., he said. DSP was responding to a reported physical domestic incident.

Police alleged that Mr. Toles struck a 35-year-old female in the face before exiting a vehicle. Cpl. Hatchell said he was located by police while walking in the 1700 block of Bay Road.
