BANGOR, Maine — A local man who continued to contact a woman with an active protection order against him was arrested after it was reported that he was crouching down near her door, Bangor police Sgt. Paul Edwards said Monday.

Benjamin A. McCue, 26, is out on bail and was charged with violating his bail conditions three times and twice violating the protection order, the sergeant said.

McCue repeatedly contacted the woman’s relatives on Oct. 14, asking for an email address, which was reported to police at 9:35 p.m. that day. Then, at about 3 p.m. on Oct. 15, he was seen by the woman crouching nearby her home. At 8 p.m. he called the woman’s house again and was acting strangely, Edwards said.

McCue surrendered to police on Oct. 18 and Officer Jason Stuart charged him with the five misdemeanor charges and then took him to Penobscot County Jail. (Nok-Noi Ricker, BDN) printed on April 28, 2017
