At 1:30 a.m. Friday, Davenport police responded to an apartment in the 2600 block of North Clark Street for a report of a burglary.
Police allege in arrest affidavits filed in Scott County District Court that Bomar, Jackson and another person went into the apartment, which was was occupied by two people, “with the intent to commit an assault and provoke fear.”
Bomar and the other person, who was not named in the affidavit, were armed with guns, according to the affidavit.
Bomar ran from the scene when he saw marked patrol squad cars; he was located hiding in some tall grass in close proximity to the apartment. Bomar had a loaded 9mm semiautomatic handgun less than a foot from his left hand and refused to comply with multiple commands, according to the affidavits.
Jackson acknowledged that she was aware that at least one of the men she was with was armed with a gun and that it was displayed inside the apartment, according to the affidavits.
