2 women charged in argument at Middletown day care; officer hurt

Posted

Middletown police charged two women following an incident that began in the day care of the First Church of God at 245 W. High St. at about 4:40 p.m. Aug. 30.

Police in arrest papers filed with District Judge David Judy said that Jeyliane Marie Rivera-Quinones, 22, of the 600 block of Eshelman Street in Highspire, identified as an employee of the day care, had to be restrained after she got into an argument with another woman at the day care, who had called police.

The dispute had to do with how one child was treating another child at the day care, police said.

Police said that another woman who was at the day care, Trinity A. Davis, 19, of the 2300 block of Kensington Street in Harrisburg, tried to prevent police from arresting Rivera-Quinones.

Police said that Davis fought with the Middletown arresting officer, causing minor scratches and cuts on his hand and a sprained right thumb.

The arresting officer used his Taser to subdue Davis. The officer was then assisted at the scene by other Middletown police and by an officer from Lower Swatara Township, according to police.

Davis was arraigned before Night Court District Judge Barbara W. Pianka and charged with aggravated assault, obstruction of the administration of law and other government function, resisting arrest, and disorderly conduct.

She was freed after posting bail of $5,000 in surety bonds through a professional bondsman, according to online court records. Her preliminary hearing is set for Sept. 16 before Judy.

Rivera-Quinones was arraigned before Pianka and charged with resisting arrest, obstruction of the administration of law and other government function, and disorderly conduct.

Bail was set at $10,000 unsecured for Rivera-Quinones, and a preliminary hearing before Judy is scheduled for Sept. 16.
