Police: Sex offender punches woman, attacks officers

DOVER - September 9, 2010

53-year-old Gary Biron of Dover is facing a long list of charges after assaulting a woman and resisting arrest Wednesday afternoon.

It was around 3:00 p.m. when Delaware State Police responded to the unit block of Richard Boulevard in Dover for what was described as a disorderly complaint, which turned violent.

A 25-year-old Maryland woman was distributing pamphlets about Biron's sex offender status in his neighborhood. The pamphlet was a print out from the Sex Offender's website displaying Biron's status as a Tier III High Risk Sex Offender.

According to police, Biron is dating the woman's mother. The woman was allegedly upset over an altercation between her mother and Biron, prompting the distribution of the pamphlets.

The victim told police that Biron confronted her, grabbed a pamphlet out of her hand, and then threatened to kill her. Biron next punched the victim in the face. Biron was also allegedly wielding a wrench in his other hand at the time of the assault.

The victim attempted to call 911, but Biron took her cell phone and threw it to the ground. The woman was able to make it to her car and escape at which time she dialed 9-1-1.

Responding officers went to Biron's home. Biron came to the front of the house, but then turned and ran back into his residence with two Troopers giving chase. Biron swung at the first Trooper but missed. He then picked up a wooden chair and struck the second officer in the chest and arm.

Biron was then cuffed and taken into custody. He is facing the following charges: Aggravated Menacing, Resisting Arrest, 2 counts Offensive Touching of a Law Enforcement Officer, Terroristic Threatening, Assault 3rd Degree, 2 counts Menacing, Criminal Mischief, Malicious Interference with Making 911 Call, and Released after posting $4,000 secured bond.

Biron was released after posting $4,000 secured bond.
