JAY, Maine — A local man faces charges after police say a Davenport Hill resident was assaulted and barricaded herself and her daughter in a bedroom Saturday.

Zackary P. Moore, 27, faces charges of violation of condition of release, criminal restraint, domestic violence assault and obstructing the reporting of a crime.

He showed up at the woman’s home where he wasn’t suppose to be Saturday, Lt. Niles Yeaton of the Franklin County Sheriff’s Department said.

The woman told him to leave and tried to call police who did receive the call at 1:18 p.m. Moore knocked the phone out of her hand, he said. She went upstairs and barricaded herself and her 7-year-old daughter in a bedroom.

When police arrived, no one answered the door so they contacted the prosecutor’s office for an order to allow them to enter, he said. They found Moore inside the home and the woman and child who were OK.

Moore faces the criminal restraint charge because she had to barricade herself and he didn’t allow her to leave, Yeaton said.

Jay police, under Chief Larry White, and a Livermore Falls officer arrived and entered the home. Franklin County Cpl. Nate Bean made the arrest, Yeaton said.

Bail was set at $180 cash and a Maine pretrial contract when Moore made an appearance in Franklin County Superior Court on Monday, according to jail administrator Doug Blauvelt.
