Milford Police have arrested a Bridgeville man after he allegedly assaulted a local woman.
The incident occurred May 10 in the parking lot of the Valley Run apartment complex, said department spokesman Dt. Dwight Young.
The suspect, identified as Bruce E. Worthy Jr., 27, of Bridgeville, allegedly went up to the 23-year-old woman, causing a verbal dispute between the two. Worthy fled after allegedly hitting the woman in the face, Young said.
The victim was not injured.
Worthy was under a court order not to have contact with the woman, the result of a prior domestic incident, Young said.
Worthy was charged with offensive touching and breach of release due to allegedly violating the no-contact order. He was committed to the Sussex Correctional Institution on an unspecified secured bond.
