BANGOR, Maine — Two police officers parked across the street from Barnaby’s night club on Odlin Road early Saturday watched as a woman in a purple shirt got out of a taxi and proceeded to punch another woman in the face, Sgt. Paul Edwards said Monday.
“Apparently they were both going for the same cab and words were exchanged,” the sergeant said.
Shannon Dejesus, 28, of Bangor got into the taxi about 1:20 a.m. but then got out and punched a 25-year-old woman from Guilford who was waiting for the next taxi, Edwards said.
Officers Chris Blanchard and David Farrar watched the assault and found the victim bleeding from the face. She refused medical treatment, the sergeant said.
Dejesus was arrested and charged with assault. She was taken to the Penobscot County Jail and later was released, Edwards said.
Dejesus was convicted of assault in July 2010 and ordered to pay a $300 fine, according to Bangor Daily News archives.
She also has convictions for disorderly conduct, criminal trespass and operating a vehicle with a suspended or revoked license, the BDN archives state. (Nok-Noi Ricker, BDN)
