  • The Milford Police Department arrested a 21-year-old Milford man for disorderly conduct after officers responded to the Academy Apartments for a report of loud subjects near the laundry room of the apartment complex.
    Patrol officers responded to the apartment complex, located in the 200 block of North Street, on Jan. 14, where officers attempted to gain entry into the laundry room, said to police spokesman Cpl. Robert Masten.
    As one officer attempted to open the door, 21-year-old Shaquel Bowe forced the door closed to prevent the officer from entering, Masten said. However, the officer eventually gained entry into the laundry room, where officers heard the loud noise upon their arrival.
    During questioning, Bowe tried to push through the officers in what appeared to be an attempt to flee the area. As officers tried to stop Bowe, he continued to struggle despite police commands to cease his behavior, Masten said. Officers eventually got Bowe to comply and took him into custody.
    Both officers’ uniforms were damaged during this incident. One officer received a minor injury that did not require immediate medical attention, Masten said.
    Bowe was charged with two counts of offensive touching of law enforcement officer, two counts of resisting arrest, disorderly conduct, hindering prosecution and criminal mischief.
    Bowe was arraigned at Justice of the Peace Court 7 and was committed to Sussex Correctional Institution in lieu of $8,500 secured bond.
    Bowe is scheduled to appear in the Kent County Court of Common Pleas on Jan. 24 for a preliminary hearing.
