Two Milton restaurants forced to deal with teen's arguments

— MILTON — A Milton man is facing numerous charges after a fight at two downtown Milton restaurants.

Dakota Lilley, 18, of North Front Street, is charged with criminal mischief, simple assault, possession of an instrument of crime, disorderly conduct and harassment after the April 13 incident, which police say began at McDonald’s on Bound Avenue

Lilley allegedly got into a verbal argument with the victim inside the restaurant before heading out to the parking lot and proceeded to pull out a short, black knife, police said. then spotted Lilley walking on top of the hood, roof and trunk of the victim’s car, police said.

The victim exited McDonald’s and got into another exchange with Lilley before Lilley walked away, police said. The victim then walked to the Subway on Broadway.

While inside Subway, the victim said Lilley came in, flipped his lunch tray, spilling his food and told the victim he scratched his car, police said. Lilley then exited the store at the request of staff, police said.

When the victim exited the Subway after a few minutes to check his vehicle, Lilley was seated nearby and proceeded to punch the victim with a closed fist and his knife “held in his hand like a set of brass knuckles,” police said.

When police arrived at the scene, Lilley threw the knife on top of the Subway building, police said.

The victim was treated for his injuries at Evangelical Community Hospital in Lewisburg.

Lilley told police he was angry because the victim told him “he was nothing and would never amount to anything,” police said.

Lilley admitted to “nicking” the victim’s vehicle, which sustained more than $5,700 in damage, police said.

Lilley was committed to the Northumberland County Prison on April 26 in lieu of $40,000 bail. A hearing in front of District Justice Richard Cashman has been scheduled for today at 9 a.m.
