WATERVILLE, Maine — A Waterville woman is facing felony charges after she allegedly assaulted emergency personnel at a hospital Saturday night, police said.

Molly Roy, 24, turned herself in to police around 9:30 p.m. Sunday, according to Waterville Deputy Chief Charles Rumsey.

Police were sent to MaineGeneral Hospital around 7 p.m. Saturday after it was reported two staff members had been assaulted, the deputy chief said.

After interviewing staff members and investigating the incident, police determined they had probable cause to charge Roy with two counts of assault on an emergency medical care provider.

It was not clear why Roy was in the emergency room, Rumsey said, or what prompted the assault. Roy put up no resistance when she surrendered to police.

“When she arrived, she was cooperative with the process,” Rumsey said.

Roy posted $3,000 bail from the police station on Sunday night, and has a court date of Feb. 26, Rumsey said. She faces up to five years in prison on both counts.
