Alleged Long Island Boys gang member who authorities said peddled heroin in the Sherman Hills apartment complex and tortured a 15-year-old boy

11:36 |

Alleged gang member who authorities said peddled heroin in the Sherman Hills apartment complex and tortured a 15-year-old boy also wanted to kill the teen and informants, police say. Authorities claim in arrest records that Daniel “Max” Davenport, 24, of West Hempstead, N.Y., while jailed at the Luzerne County Correctional Facility, attempted to have the teen boy “eliminated.” Davenport also was trying to get released from jail last month and “track down all confidential informants in the cases against him and kill them,” arrest records say. Davenport was charged by Wilkes-Barre police on two counts of intimidation of witnesses. He was arraigned late Monday afternoon by District Judge Diana Malast in Plains Township and remanded to jail for lack of $250,000 bail. Davenport has been jailed at the county correctional facility for lack of $75,000 bail since Nov. 19 on separate charges he tortured the teen boy and drug offenses, according to court records. Authorities said the teen boy is in protective custody. Davenport was among 13 people that the state Office of Attorney General said belonged to the Long Island Boys gang that distributed a large amount of heroin in Sherman Hills from December to October, according to court and arrest records. Attorney General Tom Corbett said in October that the Long Island gang sold 3,000 to 5,000 heroin packets a week with an estimated street value of $60,000 to $100,000. Troopers with the state police, Wyoming, Vice and Narcotics Unit captured Davenport on Nov. 18 when he was found hiding inside a Hazle Avenue, Wilkes-Barre, home. Wilkes-Barre police allege Davenport was one of three men who tortured the teen boy, who was recruited by the gang to sell heroin and collect money from customers in Sherman Hills, according to arrest records. Police suspect Davenport, Rufus “Roo” Evans, 22, and Edward “E” Enriquez, 21, tortured the teen because they blamed him for stealing a safe. Evans lured the boy to a home on North Meade Street, Wilkes-Barre, at about 3 a.m. on Aug. 9, according to arrest records. Police said the boy was tied to a chair and was repeatedly assaulted by Davenport, Evans and Enriquez. The boy was cut with scissors and knives that were heated over an open flame, and cleaning solvents were poured on the boy’s wounds to increase pain, arrest records said. The teen told authorities that Davenport and Evans talked about killing him and discussed how they would dispose of the body. Police found the boy in a bathtub inside the home. He was treated and released from Geisinger Wyoming Valley Medical Center, Plains Township. Davenport and Evans are scheduled for a preliminary hearing in Central Court on Dec. 12 on drug offenses and the alleged torture charges
