Officials: Duplicitous Duo Assaulted Arresting Deputy During Frederick Fraud Investigation

 

Wagswoofs – A group of Hyattsville residents are currently facing multiple charges in Frederick County. They are accused of assaulting an officer near a local bank on Saturday morning. The officer had been tracking them down in connection with a series of scams.

Deputies from the Frederick County Sheriff’s Office arrived at the Fulton Bank on Presidents Court in Frederick at approximately 10:20 a.m. on Saturday, Nov. 25. They were responding to a sighting of Gilbert, who had become known to them due to his involvement in several fraudulent transactions.

In an attempt to apprehend him, the responding deputies tried to handcuff Gilbert. However, Gilbert had different plans in mind. He quickly bolted away, accompanied by Milligan. Unfortunately for them, their escape was short-lived as they were unable to get very far.

A deputy swiftly apprehended Milligan with minimal attention, but when another deputy attempted to arrest Gilbert, he attacked and fled towards a parked car on the opposite side of the street. This forced the deputy to employ a Taser-like device in order to subdue him.

Gilbert was assessed by paramedics and transported to Frederick Health Hospital for additional medical care, according to officials. Subsequently, both he and Milligan were transferred to the Frederick County Adult Detention Center for processing.

Gilbert, who is 37 years old, has been charged with the following offenses:

    • Second-degree assault;
    • Two counts of possession/use of false government ID card;
    • Theft of between $1,500 and $25,000;
