In separate incidents over the weekend, Bangor police arrested two men and charged them with domestic assault.
Police were called to Cedar Falls Trailer Park around 9:30 p.m. Sunday where a woman reported that following an argument, Seth Emond, 28, had grabbed her arms, hit her in the head and pushed her to the floor.
Emond told Officer James Buckley that it was the woman who, after drinking tequila, became angry and tried to attack him. He said he tried to protect himself, including grabbing her arms and putting her on the floor.
Emond reportedly resisted arrest and Buckley and Officer Myron Warner reportedly pinned Emond against the wall before they handcuffed him.
The other incident happened about an hour later. A Bolling Drive woman told Officer John Robinson that Patrick Inman, 28, and she had argued and that subsequently, Inman had grabbed her by the head and shaken her forcefully.
The woman said Inman threw a telephone which struck an 11-year-old girl in the hand. The girl was one of three children at the residence. The woman also said Inman told her that if he got in trouble, he would “haunt her and kill her.”
He also reportedly tried to forcibly remove a ring from her hand, something Inman didn’t deny.
“No Parking” signs are springing up along Bangor’s streets and roads as the city’s police and public works departments try to remove ice and snow that have built up during the recent storms.
Along some streets, traffic has been reduced to one lane because of ice, snow and parked cars, police said.
On Monday, the “No Parking” signs were put up on First Street, Boynton Street, Autumn Street, Winter Street, Fremont Street, Kossuth Street, Holland Street, Court Street — from the “Police Cars Only” section to Boynton Street — and 13th Street, across from the school.
