BANGOR, Maine — A local transient was charged with four offenses last week after he drunkenly barged into his ex-girlfriend’s residence, threatened to kill her, damaged her property and then took items out of her purse, Bangor police Sgt. Paul Edwards said Tuesday.

Sean McLean, 28, was arrested for felony domestic violence threatening, as well as criminal mischief and theft by unauthorized taking at around 1:30 a.m. Aug. 31.

“He came over and said he was intoxicated and kind of pushed himself into the apartment,” Edwards said. “Then he wouldn’t leave.”

While in the apartment, McLean kept mentioning knives and then destroyed the fire extinguisher, according to the sergeant.

“She grabbed her two young kids and left screaming,” Edwards said.

By the time police arrived, McLean had gotten into a taxicab and taken it to Brewer, where he was arrested by officers from that city. He also was charged with theft of services for not paying his cab bill.

McLean was taken to Penobscot County Jail and later released, Edwards said.
