Harrington man jailed for violating protection from abuse order

HARRINGTON – On April 9, the Harrington Police Department arrested Karl V. Bryfogle, 54, of the 300 Block of Central Park Drive, Harrington after police responded to a report of a domestic dispute.

According to Lt. Earl Brode, while on patrol police responded to the Valero in the 17000 Block of South DuPont Highway for a reported domestic dispute. When they arrived they contacted the victim who reported to police that Mr. Bryfogle allegedly began following the victim to the Valero after the victim picked up their 12-year-old child from Mr. Bryfogle’s residence on Central Park Drive. Police also learned that Mr. Bryfogle was intoxicated when he was driving the child from a location in Lewes to Harrington prior to the child being picked up by the victm. A computer check revealed that there was an active protection from abuse order in place through Kent County Family Court prohibiting Mr. Bryfogle from contacting the victim. Police obtained warrants for Mr. Bryfogle and he later turned himself into the Harrington Police Department.

He was charged with endangering the welfare of a child and violation of a protective order. He was processed and arraigned via video phone at Justice of the Peace Court 2 and was committed to the Sussex Correctional Institute in default of $5,000 cash only bail.
