WATERVILLE, Maine — An Oakland woman who has been in trouble for domestic violence before is facing a felony charge after an assault on her ex-boyfriend, according to police.

Jenna Porter, 27, who has a prior conviction for domestic violence assault on her rap sheet, wasn’t too happy that her ex-boyfriend was seeing another girl, according to Waterville Deputy Chief Charles Rumsey.

On Monday afternoon, Porter allegedly decided to take matters into her own hands, going to an Elm Street residence where she knew the man had been staying, Rumsey said.

The man’s new girlfriend happened to be there, and Rumsey said Porter made threats to kill the other woman.

Porter’s ex stepped in and intervened when she tried to go after the woman, receiving scratches on his neck and face in the process.

Porter was arrested on charges of domestic violence assault, a Class C felony due to her prior conviction, and a misdemeanor charge of criminal threatening, Rumsey said.

Porter was booked into the Kennebec County Correctional Facility, where she remained Wednesday. Her court date is set for Nov. 27.
