Chattanooga Police arrested Quintel D. Walker, 26, for allegedly knocking a boy off his bike and throwing another boy by the shirt to the concrete.

On Friday afternoon, an officer responded to an assault in the 600 block of Parkdale Avenue. Upon arrival, the complainant advised that Walker, who lived in the area, had harmed her eight- and nine-year-old sons.

Police spoke with the eight-year-old, who said he was riding his bike in the street when Walker shoved him to the ground and got on top of him. When this occurred, the nine-year-old brother allegedly tried to strike Walker in the back to stop him. Walker then grabbed the nine-year-old by the shirt and threw him to the concrete, the boys said.

Police observed lacerations and bruising on the older brother’s chest, as well as his torn shirt.

One woman who witnessed the assault alleged that she screamed at Walker to stop, at which time he returned to his house. Police reported Walker held a ceramic flowerpot and acted aggressively when they visited his residence.

The defendant allegedly closed the door on the police and locked them out. They forced entry into his home and found him on the living room floor yelling. Walker resisted arrest by trying to punch the officers with closed fists.

When he was finally placed in handcuffs, he bit an officer’s finger.

Walker has an extensive criminal history dating to 2009.

He was arrested on charges of aggravated child abuse, assault, and resisting arrest. Authorities placed him on a $20,000 bond.
