FAIRFIELD, Maine — A local man is accused of dragging his girlfriend by the hair and holding a knife to the throat of another woman.
David Andre Gordon, 29, of Fairfield was arrested Wednesday night on charges of criminal threatening with a deadly weapon, domestic violence terrorizing and domestic assault. He was taken to Somerset County Jail in Madison.
Fairfield police Sgt. Matthew Bard said Gordon dragged his girlfriend by her hair into another room and threatened to kill both his girlfriend and her friend.
“The friend of the girlfriend was in the room sticking up for her friend,” said Bard. “He told her to mind her business and then held a knife to her throat.”
Bard said the friend went into another room and called police from her cell phone just before 8 p.m.
When police arrived at Gordon’s Summit Street apartment, Bard said Gordon and his girlfriend were in a “very mild argument at that point. The other female explained what was going on. It was information to cause concern that we took him into custody.”
Gordon was still at Somerset County Jail on Thursday night.
