According to arrest records police filed with District Judge David Judy, Luther C. Gilbert III, 36, of the North Pine Street address, pushed the victim and took her phone from her when she said she was going to call police.

Gilbert then stomped on the woman’s foot and grabbed her wrist and twisted it, digging his fingernail into her hand causing a wound, according to police.

Gilbert was arraigned April 11 before District Judge Hanif L. Johnson Sr. and charged with simple assault, and obstruction of a telephone line in an emergency, which is a summary offense.

Bail was set at $5,000 unsecured. A preliminary hearing before Judy is scheduled for April 29.
