Man with history of domestic violence offenses arrested again

By Ryan McLaughlin, BDN Staff

WATERVILLE, Maine — A Kennebunk man who was arrested on domestic violence assault charges by Waterville police in May found himself in trouble with central Maine law enforcement again Wednesday night.

Prince Benjamin, 27, was at a Gilman Street apartment that he wasn’t supposed to be at around 10 p.m. Wednesday, Waterville Deputy Chief Charles Rumsey said.

Rumsey said Benjamin was visiting his girlfriend, which he wasn’t allowed to do due to bail conditions. The woman told police she wanted him removed from the apartment, and Benjamin made threats to kill her and harm her family, the deputy chief said.

While police were en route, they learned that Benjamin had two outstanding warrants for unpaid domestic violence assault fines — one out of Biddeford and one out of Augusta, according to Rumsey.

Benjamin was booked on the warrants, along with violating conditions of release and domestic violence criminal threatening, a Class C felony due to his prior charges, Rumsey said.

On May 31, Benjamin was arrested in the Elm City for allegedly choking the same girlfriend, according to Bangor Daily News archives.

Benjamin is being held without bail at the Kennebec County Correctional Facility.
