Camden County Prosecutor Warren Faulk reported a Camden man was convicted Friday of attacking an ex-girlfriend at her home last year.
Reginald Davis, M/48, of Camden, was convicted by a jury Friday of 4th degree Criminal Trespass, 4th degree Unlawful Possession of a Weapon, and two counts of Simple Assault, a disorderly persons offense.
On May 18, 2012, Davis forced his way into a 39-year-old former girlfriend’s home on Myrtle Street in Camden. The woman attempted to defend herself with a baseball bat, but Davis took the bat from her and struck her repeatedly before the woman was able to break free and grab a knife. Davis was then arrested by police standing outside the apartment with the bat still in his hand.
The woman was bruised but did not suffer any broken bones in the attack.
Davis is scheduled to be sentenced before Superior Court Judge Gwendolyn Blue on November 1, 2013.
Davis’ conviction marks the first trial victory for Assistant Prosecutor Becky Lapidow, who joined the prosecutor’s office in May 2012.
