5 Arrested For Rioting In Roosevelt

Five people were arrested in Roosevelt on May 11 after a fight broke out at a local residence.

Police say at 4:56 a.m. officers on routine patrol observed a large disturbance in front of 5 1st Place.  As the officers approached the house and attempted to locate the owner, 30-year-old Danielle Davenport of Massapequa, who police say was intoxicated, confronted the officers claiming to be the homeowner screaming and cursing at them.

Gerina Leftenant, 33, of Hempstead, Jalise Alford, 21, and Shandlis Utsey, 21, both residents of the home, charged the officers with closed fists, according to police. Utsey then retrieved two six-inch metal knives from the kitchen and began waving them towards the officers, according to police. The homeowner, Kenya Utsey, 39, was located and placed under arrest.

Davenport, Leftenant and Alford are charged with second-degree rioting, resisting arrest and obstructing governmental administration. Shandlis Utsey is charged with criminal possession of a weapon, rioting and menacing a police officer. Kenya Utsey is charged with criminal nuisance and general provision sale without an appropriate license.
