When officers arrived on scene, it was learned that one suspect had fled from the scene. Contact was made with the victim, who advised that the suspect who was identified as, Jason Dailey, 29 of Milford, DE, and a 17-year old juvenile responded to the parking lot where Dailey allegedly struck the victim in the face over an ongoing situation. Then Dailey fled from the scene prior to police arrival.
