Troopers Arrest Two Wilmington Women for Felony Assault on Law Enforcement Officers- Bear

Bear– Delaware State Police arrested Ja’aonne Bell, 20, of Wilmington, and Azaina Davis 21, of Wilmington for felony assault on law enforcement officers after acting disorderly and assaulting troopers inside of a Wawa early Monday morning.

Shortly after midnight, on Monday, December 27, 2021, troopers were dispatched to the Wawa, located at 3601 Wrangle Hill Road, Bear, DE, for a reported fight in progress inside of the store. While units were responding, troopers leaned that several patrons and store employees were huddled inside of the manager’s office with the door locked.  It was reported that one of the suspects was actively trying to force her way into the office and was threatening those inside.  Troopers arrived on scene and confronted two female suspects, later identified as Ja’aonne Bell and Azaina Davis.  When the officers ordered the suspects to surrender, they actively began resisting arrest. Throughout the incident, the suspects spat in the officers’ faces, assaulted them, and scratched the face of another.  After a prolonged encounter, the suspects were finally taken into custody. It was at this time, Azaina Davis advised officers she was hyperventilating and wanted medical attention.  EMS arrived on scene and during transport to the hospital, Davis actively fought with EMS personnel.  She was ultimately treated and released from the hospital and transported back to Troop 2.

Through investigation it was learned that the two female suspects arrived at the Wrangle Hill Road WAWA to make a purchase. After exiting the building, they were unable to find the keys to their car and became frustrated.  Tensions mounted and the female subjects demanded the WAWA employees get their car opened, however, the employees were unable to.  The two females became irate and began damaging numerous displays and merchandise inside of the store. The suspects then assaulted a WAWA employee, and a good Samaritan after they tried to intervene.

Two troopers were treated at Christiana Hospital for exposure to bodily fluids from suspects.  The other troopers who were assaulted did not seek medical treatment.
