Pizza argument ends in a Milford woman threatening to stab another


Veronica Hurtt

MILFORD – On June 19, Milford Police arrested a 27-year-old Milford woman stemming from two separate domestic incidents that occurred on June 11 and June 29, in Milford.

According to Det. Dwight Young, Veronica Hurtt was charged with aggravated menacing, possession of a deadly weapon during the commission of a felony, criminal contempt of a domestic violence protective order through use of threat of a deadly weapon, possession of a deadly weapon by person prohibited, offensive touching, terroristic threatening, criminal contempt of a domestic violence protective order, criminal impersonation and failure to comply with taking photos and fingerprints.

An investigation revealed that on June 11, while reportedly outside in a driveway of a residence located in the 400 block of N. Church St., Ms. Hurtt and a 30-year-old female victim were allegedly involved in a verbal dispute over eating pizza.

Ms. Hurtt became irate and threw the pizza box containing the pizza at the female victim.

Hurtt then pulled out a knife from her waistband, police said, and threatened to stab the female victim with it. The female victim then threatened to call the police and Ms. Hurtt fled the scene.

On June 19, Milford Police made contact with Ms. Hurtt during a traffic stop of a vehicle on Brandywine Drive in Shawnee Acres Development.

Milford Police discovered that the 30-year-old female victim from the incident on June 11 was also an occupant in the vehicle.

Ms. Hurtt initially provided police with a false name. She was taken into custody by the Milford Police.

“While at the Milford Police Department, Hurtt refused to comply with fingerprints and photos for the criminal charges, Hurtt was charged for her non-compliance,” said Det. Young.

Ms. Hurtt was arraigned and committed in default of $31,600 secured bond.
