ABSECON, NJ – According to the Absecon police, it was a busy night Michael Davis, 37, a local after a crime spree that ended at the Atlantic County jail.

“A man was arrested after victimizing numerous residents in the late hours Friday night. Officers were called to the Absecon Townhomes and Clayton Mill Run Apartment Complex where they discovered that a male had unlawfully entered a vehicle and two residences, as well as assaulted multiple victims,” police reported. “Responding officers learned that a man, while nude, approached a vehicle in the Absecon Townhomes parking lot; the vehicle was occupied by a juvenile driver. The man entered his vehicle, without permission, and ordered him to drive to the Clayton Mill Run apartment complex. There, the man assaulted the juvenile then fled from the vehicle with the juvenile’s cellular phone.”

Police said, once inside the apartment complex, Davis made entry into a residence occupied by an adult female and her two children. The residents were able to flee from their home, unharmed, while the suspect was inside.

“The suspect left the apartment then gained entry into another apartment at Clayton Mill Run after scaling a second story balcony. A woman and her infant child were inside. The suspect initiated an assault against the woman; however, she was able to fight him off. This caused the suspect to flee,” Absecon PD said in a statement. “The suspect fled the residence and went into hiding upon the arrival of police. A city officer located the suspect, identified as Michael Davis, 37, of Absecon. Davis refused to surrender and led the officer on a foot chase. The officer caught Davis and he was taken into custody.”

Davis was charged with Burglary (3 Counts), Aggravated Criminal Sexual Contact (3 Counts), Lewdness (3 Counts), Endangering the Welfare of a Child (2 Counts), Criminal Restraint, Theft from a Person, Hindering Apprehension, Obstruction, and Resisting Arrest.
