UD Police arrest 21-year-old on multiple offenses

University of Delaware Police arrested a 21-year-old man who is unaffiliated with the University on multiple offenses.

UD Police arrived at the basketball courts near Sypherd Hall at approximately 10:30 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 29, upon receiving reports of an alleged relationship violence incident. Bystanders provided UD Police with a detailed description of a man who was observed striking a woman with his hands and strangling her. UDPD located a man in the area who met bystanders’ descriptions of the suspect and arrested him following a brief pursuit on foot.

The victim — a UD undergraduate student — gave an interview with UD Police, during which red marks around the victim’s neck and scratch marks to her arms were observed. With this evidence, along with witness testimony, UD Police charged Nasir Mohammed, 21, with strangulation, offensive touching, disorderly conduct, resisting arrest, criminal trespass and breach of conditions of bond. He was arraigned Monday, Oct. 30, and transported to Howard Young Correctional Facility after failing to post a $6,800 bond. He is banned from UD’s campus and has been issued a no-contact order with the victim and with UD property.
