Milton man arrested on menacing charges

May 3, 2021

A Milton man is facing two felony charges stemming from an altercation where he allegedly threw a beer bottle at a 14-year-old girl.

Partor Rios Sanchez, 44, is facing charges of possession of a deadly weapon in commission of a felony, aggravated menacing, offensive touching and four counts of endangering the welfare of a child during a May 1 incident at a Mulberry Street residence.

Master Cpl. Heather Pepper said Sanchez argued with the 14-year-old while cooking in the kitchen. A 47-year-old woman who was also in the residence tried to intervene. Pepper said Sanchez became aggressive and displayed a kitchen knife at the teenage girl and the woman. A 12-year-old boy stepped between Sanchez and the females, calming the situation until Sanchez took a beer bottle and threw it at the 14-year-old, and then hit the 47-year-old woman with his elbow before fleeing the scene. 

Pepper said the victims did not require medical attention. Later that night, Sanchez came back to the residence where troopers responded and arrested him without incident.

Sanchez was arraigned in Justice of the Peace Court 3 in Georgetown and is being held at Sussex Correctional Institution on $40,000 cash bond.
