Manchester Man Arrested for Domestic Assault after Police Pursuit

A Manchester man was arrested on assault charges after running from police earlier this week.

Manchester Police say 23-year old Zachary Jimerson is facing a number of charges, including Domestic Assault.

Jimerson is accused of choking and assaulting his girlfriend at 1501 North Franklin Street last Saturday. Police received a report of a fight and responded to the scene. His girlfriend was uncooperative with police, but witnesses explained to them what Jimerson allegedly did. He had already fled the scene and police weren’t able to find him.

On Monday, police were notified that Jimerson was again at 1501 North Franklin Street. Officers responded and found signs that another altercation had taken place. Initially, the victim was again uncooperative, but eventually told police that she was assaulted again by Jimerson and that he damaged a door, wall and TV.

Early Tuesday morning, police received information that Jimerson was in an apartment at 116 Ludland Drive. Officers from the Manchester Police Department and Delaware County Sheriff’s Office staged in the area. Jimerson jumped out of a second story window when officers announced they were there. They ran after Jimerson and he was taken into custody a short time later.

Manchester Police say Officer David Trumblee suffered a knee injury during the pursuit after stepping into a hole in the ground.

In addition to Domestic Assault charge, Jimerson has also been charged with two counts of violating a no contact order, 3rd and 4th degree criminal mischief, interference with official acts and assault causing bodily injury.

He remains in custody at the Delaware County Jail.
