November 22nd, 2015 by WCBC Radio

Cumberland City Police officers were dispatched to a Maryland Avenue residence Saturday in reference to a request for an officer to stand by while a subject removed their belongings from an ex-domestic partner’s residence.  As officers attempted to assist the subject with removing their belongings from the residence, they were approached by Shikeyla Henderson, 19, of Cumberland who began yelling obscenities at officers and the subject attempting to remove belongings.  

Officers attempted to calm Henderson, however she began to threaten officers telling them she was going to assault them.  Henderson then threw a backpack at officers striking them. Henderson then lunged past officers and struck the subject attempting to obtain their belongings from the residence.  Officers advised Henderson that she was under arrest and she began kicking officers and swinging her fists attempting to strike them.  Henderson continued to fight with officers and kicked a window out of the door of the residence during her arrest.  When officers attempted to place Henderson in a police transport van, she refused to cooperate and continued her assaultive behavior.  

As a result, Henderson was transported to Cumberland Police Headquarters where she was charged with the following:

Assault 2nd Degree – 1 count

Assault 2nd Degree Law Enforcement Officer – 4 counts

Resisting Arrest – 1 count

Disorderly Conduct – 1 count

Malicious Destruction of Property – 1 count

Henderson was transported to the Allegany County District Court for a preliminary hearing before a court commissioner.  She was released on her personal recognizance pending trial.
