Woman Arrested In Connection With Assault on Police Officer in Pennsylvania
Police have arrested and charged a Germantown woman in connection with the dragging of a police officer by a car down a central Pennsylvania street.
Southern Regional Police in York County Pennsylvania issued warrants for three Montgomery County individuals after one of their officers was injured after he approached a suspicious car parked in the parking lot of the convenience store in Glen Rock, Pa., on November 4.
Police say Officer Michael Storeman was called to investigate suspicious people in a vehicle. He approached the vehicle and observed a female slumped over in the back and two male subjects in the front. The male subjects began to make movements, and the officer attempted to open the passenger door.
The passenger in the car grabbed Officer Storeman’s arm and pulled him towards the vehicle while the driver rapidly accelerated. The officer was dragged down the street, and his body struck a stopped vehicle causing him to slide across the roadway. He was taken to the York Hospital Trauma Room and was later discharged with multiple injuries. Officer Storeman suffered an ankle injury and road rash abrasions, but his injuries were not life-threatening.
Police believe that Jenny Kim, 38, of Coachmans Road in Germantown, was the female in the back seat of the vehicle. She was arrested on Nov. 11 in Montgomery County on charges of being a fugitive from justice in Pennsylvania and faces charges including conspiracy to commit aggravated assault, conspiracy to hinder apprehension and conspiracy to reckless endanger another person, according to Southern Regional Police.
The two other men in the car were arrested in Montgomery County. They were David Robert Achsetter, 36 of Gaithersburg, and Roberto Fabian Taberes, 38 of Rockville were arrested on for being fugitives from justice. Police arrested Achsetter on Nov. 8 and Taberes was arrested on Nov. 11.
According to the Evening Sun Newspaper online in York County, Pa., upon apprehension, Tabares, was bitten by a police K-9 and treated at a Montgomery County hospital.
Southern Region Police allege that Tabares was the driver, and Achstetter was the front seat passenger who police say grabbed Officer Storman’s arm as he attempted to open the passenger side door of the black 2011 Toyota Camry with Maryland registration. They have been charged with aggravated assault, hindering apprehension or prosecution, unlawful restraint, simple assault, recklessly endangering another person, and criminal mischief.
All three have been arrested multiple times in Montgomery County for drugs and weapons related charges since 1995
