BANGOR, Maine — Police went to a State Street residence in response to a domestic assault report Saturday afternoon, but the 23-year-old Bangor man reportedly involved had fled the scene, Sgt. Paul Edwards said.

Donald McMahon, who had been arrested last spring with a 6-inch knife in his pants, returned home early Sunday with two knives hidden in his pants, the sergeant said.

When police told him to put his hands up at about 3:34 a.m. Sunday, “a large knife could be seen in his waistband,” and another knife was later found on him, Edwards said.

McMahon was arrested on charges of felony domestic violence criminal threatening, as well as domestic violence assault and carrying a concealed weapon.

“It was basically bumped up [to a felony] because he has a prior conviction for criminal threatening,” Edwards said.

McMahon was arrested in late April on three outstanding warrants and charges of refusing to submit to arrest and carrying a concealed weapon when he tripped and fell down while trying to get away from Officer Taylor Bagley.

According to court listing printed in the Bangor Daily News, McMahon was convicted in July of misuse of identification, for which he was sentenced to jail for three days and ordered to pay restitution of $48. He also received three-day jail sentences for refusing to submit to arrest or detention and for violating condition of release.

McMahon was taken to the Penobscot County Jail after his arrest Sunday and remained there Tuesday afternoon, a jail official said. (Nok-Noi Ricker, BDN)
