BELFAST, Maine — A man and a woman both were charged after a late-night ATM run that didn’t end smoothly.

Anthony R. Knight, 46, of Belfast, had been with Latisha Robert, 25, of Searsport, at about 12:30 a.m. Tuesday when she reportedly decided he needed to give her $200, according to Detective Sgt. Bryan Cunningham of the Belfast Police Department.

“They got in the vehicle,” he said. “She thought they were going to the ATM. They didn’t go to the ATM. So, she punched him in the car and gave him a shiner.”

Knight then drove directly to the police department, where both ended up being arrested. Knight was charged with violation of his conditions of release from a previous incident, in which he was charged with domestic violence assault on Robert. His bail conditions included having no contact with the woman.

Robert was charged with domestic violence assault.

Both were taken to Waldo County Jail in Belfast, where they were booked and then released on bail.

Robert’s bail was set at $400 unsecured cash and Knight’s bail was $500 unsecured, according to a jail official.
