A rash of assaults kept LaFollette Police busy last week.

On May 21 Officer Stephen Wallen was called to investigate a disturbance call at Crown Point Apartments.

The victim told Wallen that Delores Morris, 50 of 2790 Cedar Creek Road, entered the apartment and began a verbal argument with the victim’s boyfriend.

Records indicate that the argument escalated into a physical confrontation when Morris and her son, Dustin E. Stanfield, 29, of 1425 Windgrove Road, Knoxville, assaulted both victims several times.

At the scene the male victim presented with a bloody nose and lip as well as red marks on his neck which were allegedly the result of blows delivered by Stanfield.

Both Morris and Stanfield were charged with assault.

Wallen was dispatched to look into another domestic complaint last Saturday. 

A witness informed Wallen that Travis Michael Robertson, 21, of 544 North 27th Street, allegedly threw a victim into the roadway while attempting to take her against her will.

According to Wallen’s report he had received two other reports during the day of Robertson driving recklessly in the area and fighting with a female.

Robertson was arrested and charged with assault by domestic violence. He is scheduled to appear in court on June 19.

Officer Tony Rucker responded to yet another disturbance Tuesday on East Elm Street.

The victim reported she and Kenneth Justin Silcox, 23, of 909 East Elm Street became involved in an argument. Records indicate when the victim attempted to leave Silcox allegedly blocked the doorway.

During the course of the altercation Silcox also allegedly took the victim’s phone and broke it.

Silcox was arrested and charged with assault by domestic violence, false imprisonment and vandalism under $500. He is scheduled to appear in court on June 19.
