Wanted Man Armed with Knife and Abettor Arrested in Maricopa

MARICOPA  — A wanted man in the small southwestern Kern County town of Maricopa and his abettor are behind bars, after being taken into custody by deputies on Saturday.

Dale Knight Jr., 29, and 45-year-old Denise McMillan were both booked into the Taft City Jail for one count of resisting/delaying a peace officer.  Knight was also booked on four outstanding arrest warrants.

According to the Kern County Sheriff’s Office, the incident began around 1:30 p.m. on May 24, when deputies responded to a report of a subject brandishing a weapon in the 400 block of Mary Street in Maricopa.

On their arrival, deputies learned that Knight, who was wielding a knife and fled the scene on foot, had been involved an earlier verbal altercation.

“During their investigation deputies learned Knight was possibly hiding at a residence located in the 300 block of Broadway Street in Maricopa,” Sheriff’s spokesperson Ray Pruitt said. “When they (deputies) arrived at the residence, they saw the suspect standing in the front yard, just before he ran inside.”

Pruitt said that deputies proceeded to knock at the front door of the home multiple times and were eventually meet by McMillan, who  refused to cooperate with the deputies’ request to enter her residence, before she went back inside.

Eventually, deputies said that McMillan came back outside the home and allowed deputies to go inside  her residence, where they found Knight hiding under a blanket in a bedroom.
