ORONO, Maine — A woman contacted police Tuesday saying her male roommate was harassing her and had made specific threats about killing their female boss. After police interviewed a second person, the roommate was arrested, police Capt. Josh Ewing said Thursday.
“He made comments about killing her boss,” the police captain said. “This was not just him having a bad day, there were specifics about the threats. Very specific.”
Michael McClain, 22, and his roommate worked at the same place in Bangor, which was not identified by police. Police went to McClain’s place of employment at around 2:30 p.m. Tuesday and he was arrested and charged with terrorizing, Ewing said.
McClain was taken to the Penobscot County Jail in Bangor after his arrest and later released, Ewing said. During McClain’s first court appearance Wednesday, he also was barred from returning to the Orono apartment he shared with his roommate or having contact with his female boss, Ewing said.
