  • The Harrington Police Department arrested two men, one from Felton and the other from Harrington, after receiving an assault complaint from Stone’s Bar on Mechanic Street.
    Officers responded to the bar around 11 p.m. Feb. 28, where they located a victim inside the bar suffering from non-life threatening injuries, according to police spokesman Lt. Earl Brode.
    The victim was transported by ambulance to a local hospital.
    A police investigation revealed that Felton resident Corey A. Harden, 21, and Harrington resident Mightys E. Gibbs, 21, were involved in an altercation with the victim that resulted in non-life threatening injuries, Brode said.
    An investigation led officers to believe the two suspects were possibly at a residence in the 200 block of South West Street, where officers responded and located Gibbs.
    Gibbs was uncooperative with officers and refused to provide any information regarding the assault or the location of Harden, Brode said.
    A search of the residence led officers to find Harden, who was then taken into custody without incident. When officers tried to arrest Gibbs, he resisted arrest, but was taken into custody after a short struggle, Brode said.
    Both suspects were transported to the Harrington Police Department for processing.
    While at the police station, Harden became disorderly and damaged property within the station, Brode said.
    Gibbs was charged with hindering prosecution and resisting arrest. He was arraigned at Justice of the Peace Court 3, committed to the Sussex Correctional Institution and issued a $2,000 secured bond.
    Harden was charged with third-degree assault, criminal mischief under $1,000 and disorderly conduct. He was arraigned at Justice of the Peace Court 3, committed to the Sussex Correctional Institution and issued a $2,000 secured bond.
