BANGOR, Maine — Bangor police arrested a 26-year-old local man for assaulting his girlfriend at two different convenience stores in a period of less than a week.

As a result, Brian R. Johnson is facing charges of domestic violence criminal threatening, violation of the conditions of his release and Class C felony domestic violence assault, Bangor police Sgt. Paul Edwards said Wednesday.

According to Edwards, the first arrest followed an assault that occurred on Aug. 22 at Leadbetter Mini Stop, where Johnson reportedly assaulted his live-in girlfriend of two years. Police caught up with him at his residence and placed him under arrest.

Three days later, police arrested him again, after he allegedly assaulted the same woman at Circle K on Main Street, Edwards said. He was arrested shortly after the assault, when police found him at the corner of Main and Buck streets.

As of Wednesday night, Johnson remained behind bars at Penobscot County Jail, a jail official confirmed.
