Officers went to Davis Court just before 8 a.m. Friday after the alleged victim reported that Elwell had assaulted her about 15 minutes earlier.

Elwell had left the home by the time police arrived, but officers found him a short time later on Cedar Street, Hagan said.

The woman’s condition was not available at press time.

Elwell was held at Cumberland County Jail on $5,000 unsecured bail pending a May 8 court date.
