On Tuesday December 26, 2017, at 1:54 pm, Cumberland City Police officers responded to the downtown mall in reference to an assault.  It was learned that a Cumberland City civilian parking enforcement officer was walking in the pedestrian portion of the mall when he and other patrons observed Nicholas Moreland, age 26 of Cumberland, screaming and cursing as he was striking a stick against a wall of a business on George Street.  Witnesses also advised that Moreland had a rock in his other hand.  As the parking enforcement officer passed, Moreland threw the rock and struck the officer in the back.  Moreland was placed in custody and transported to the Cumberland City Police Department where he was processed and served.  He was taken to the Allegany County District Court Commissioner’s Office for a bond hearing and was released on his personal recognizance pending trial at the Allegany County District Court.  No medical attention was needed for the victim in this matter.

On Saturday October 11, 2014, Cumberland City Police served a criminal summons on Ronald Diggs, age 62 of Cumberland.  The summons was issued as a result of a September 21, 2014 incident where officers responded to the parking lot area of the Cumberland City Police Department.  Upon arrival officers observed Diggs being verbally disruptive and acting in a unusual manner.  As officers approached Diggs, he ran onto the garage door, bounced off and then towards the officers and assaulted one of them before being placed into custody.  Diggs was served and released pending trial at the Allegany County District Court.
