WATERVILLE, Maine — A Winslow man was arrested twice on Thursday morning after he broke into his ex-girlfriend’s apartment and then returned there after posting bail, police said.
Arrashke Hekmat, 31, wasn’t supposed to return to the apartment or contact the woman after bailing from the Waterville police station on burglary and criminal mischief charges, but he went back to the Redington Street residence anyway, Deputy Chief Charles Rumsey said.
The front door to the woman’s apartment was damaged during Hekmat’s first break-in, according to Rumsey, and the apartment also had damage.
“Hekmat had tried to gain entry through a side door, breaking a railing in the storm door, so he moved to the front door, which he kicked in,” said Rumsey.
Hekmat was arrested and booked on charges of burglary, a Class C felony, and criminal mischief, a Class D misdemeanor. He posted $1,000 bail from the Waterville police station and was released.
At 5:45 a.m., police received a phone call that Hekmat had returned to the apartment, and he was found standing in the kitchen and arrested again.
This time, police took Hekmat to the Kennebec County Correctional Facility, where he remained Friday.
