BANGOR, Maine — A 48-year-old Bangor man accused of assaulting a woman at a Jefferson Street residence was arrested Thursday night, according to police.
Officers were sent to the scene around 6:25 p.m. when it was reported that James Brady had a knife and had assaulted his girlfriend, according to Bangor police Sgt. Paul Edwards.
The woman, who was complaining of back pain when police arrived, was treated at the scene but did not require a hospital trip, the sergeant said.
Despite warnings to come out and surrender, Brady would not comply with officers’ warnings, and police eventually went in the apartment to search for him, according to Edwards.
Brady was found in a bedroom and was taken into custody, the sergeant said. He was unarmed when police arrested him, but a knife was found on a kitchen counter. Edwards said it was not used in the assault.
Brady was charged with domestic violence assault and domestic violence criminal threatening. He was brought to Penobscot County Jail, where he remained Friday.
