Assailant Attacks Delaware Voter Who Just Cast Ballot: Police

Police said a man was assaulted after voting in Wilmington on Election Day.

City police spokeswoman Sgt. Andrea Janvier said that 65-year-old Jeff Brown had cast his ballot to vote at P.S. duPont Middle School and was walking away from the area when the incident occurred.

Brown said he felt targeted by an unknown man after he was told that he would not be allowed to vote.

After voting, Brown said he encountered the suspect twice more and a physical altercation took place.

Brown sustained minor cuts and scratches to his elbow and knees.

Police describe the suspect as a black male, 20-30 years of age, 180-190 pounds, standing between 5-foot, 9-inches to 5-foot, 10-inches tall who was driving a silver colored vehicle that left before officers arrived.
