VEAZIE, Maine — A report of a local man damaging a mobile home led to the arrest of a woman Tuesday when police said they discovered she had assaulted the man.

Just after 1 p.m. Tuesday, police were dispatched to a local mobile home park, and when Chief Mark Leonard arrived, he said he discovered Katie McCarthy, 27, had assaulted Joseph Richards, 26.

Both parties are from Veazie, Leonard said.

Leonard said one hole had been kicked in the wall at the home, knocking a mirror off the wall.

Richards suffered lacerations on his face and a bump on his head but did not require medical attention, according to Leonard.

Richards was issued a summons for criminal mischief but was not arrested. McCarthy was taken to the Penobscot County Jail and charged with domestic violence assault, a Class D misdemeanor. Orono police Officer Christopher Watson assisted at the scene.

CORRECTION:

A previous version of this story said Joseph Richards was charged with disorderly conduct. He was charged with criminal mischief.
