According to court records, New Bethlehem Police Department filed criminal charges against 35-year-old Scott Christopher Walker, of Mayport.

On June 9, 2016, Officer Nicole Peck and Chief Scott Ryan, of the New Bethlehem Police Department, responded to a call from Armstrong 911 for a complaint regarding Scott Christopher Walker.

According to a criminal complaint, a known woman reported that “within the last two weeks, Walker had been ‘coming around’ her residence, attempting to talk to her special needs daughter.
