dispatched to Lane Farm Campground on State Route 26 in response
to a felonious assault. The victim, Martin Robinson, age 31,
Marietta, advised Deputy Parks that he observed Dennis C. Crockett,
age 28, 1560 Pleasant Ridge Road, Marietta, assaulting his
live-in girlfriend Samantha Lemon, age 23, and when he attempted
to intervene, Mr. Crockett grabbed a metal cooking pan and
struck him several times in the back of the head. Arriving
to assist, Detective Mark Johnson was familiar with Mr. Crockett
and knew where he was staying. The officers arrived at Mr.
Crockett’s address and after further interviewing, arrested
Mr. Crockett for felonious assault and transported him to the
Washington County Jail. Robinson was transported to Marietta
Memorial Hospital where he was treated and released.
During the course of his investigation Deputy
Parks also learned of the possibility of an abduction subsequent
to the domestic dispute and felonious assault. Witness statement
were obtained that led officers to believe that Mr. Crockett
had in his possession a loaded fire arm and may have been threatening
to take his own life. Further investigation also revealed that
Mr. Crockett allegedly forced his girlfriend Samantha Lemon
into a vehicle as he fled the scene of the assault.
As a result, Deputy Parks will submit evidence
supporting charges of abduction, having a weapon while under
disability and domestic violence to the Prosecutor’s

is being held without bond pending an initial court appearance
on charges of felonious assault and violating the terms of
his parole. Crockett is on parole from the State of West Virginia
