A 23-year-old Georgetown woman is facing several criminal charges after refusing to allow police into her home to search for a wanted man and check on the status of a child, according to police.

Thomika Boyer of Georgetown was taken into custody about 9:47 p.m. on Friday after police were called to her home the 100 block of West Adams Street for a possible fight, according to Georgetown Police Department spokesman Lt. Lawrence Grose.

Responding officers learned a person then outside of the home had been involved in a fight with third person who was still inside the home, Grose said.

The officers were familiar with the man inside the home and believed he was wanted on outstanding warrants, Grose said. However, Boyer refused to allow police into her home and at some point pushed a small child inside the residence, he said.

Grose said Boyer began yelling profanities when officers opened the door to her home in an effort to check on the child’s safety.

Police reportedly attempted to take Boyer into custody, at which point she allegedly attempt to pull away and refused to be handcuffed, resulting in a brief struggle.

Afterward, officers entered Boyer’s home and determined the child was safe, while the man inside had fled the area, Grose said.

Boyer is charged with resisting arrest, hindering prosecution, disorderly conduct and endangering the welfare of a child

She was initially held at the Sussex Correctional Institution on a $500 secured bond, but has since been released, Grose said.
