Newark, DE -

A Wilmington man is accused of assaulting three strangers and a Newark Police Officer in a Wawa Parking Lot.

Police say the first victim and her co-worker (the second victim) arrived at the Wawa located on 601 Ogletown Road in Newark, DE at approximately 5:15pm Tuesday. They observed George Johnson, arguing incoherently with the passenger of a vehicle in the parking lot.

When they exited the store, Johnson approached them. Police say he called the first victim an expletive and then punched her in the face knocking her to the ground. A tussle ensued with Johnson and the second victim.

A Newark Police Officer, who was on patrol and not dispatched to the scene, observed the second victim struggling with Johnson. The officer exited his vehicle and began using his radio to notify the dispatch center of the situation.

While doing so, George Johnson ran over and punched the officer in the head knocking him over. A Good Samaritan came to the officer's assistance and Johnson punched the Samaritan (the fourth victim) in the face. The officer ran after Johnson with the assistance of multiple people on scene. The officer ordered him to the ground while displaying his taser. Johnson eventually complied and was handcuffed without further incident.

George Johnson was transported to Christiana Emergency Room for a medical evaluation, and then transported to NPD to face charges. Johnson was arraigned in front of Justice of the Peace Court #2, received $15,000 secured bond on the charges listed below and was transported to Howard R. Young Correctional Institution in lieu of bail.
