RUMFORD, Maine — Adam R. Cormier, 18, of Rumford was arrested Sunday night by Detective Sgt. James Bernard on a Class C charge of criminal threatening with a dangerous weapon.

A female called 911, reporting that while in front of her residence on Cumberland Street with her child and boyfriend, Cormier drove up and pointed a black pistol toward her boyfriend. The complainant stated her boyfriend crouched down and Cormier fled in his vehicle.

Bernard found Cormier at his residence, where he recovered a black Smith & Wesson M&P 40 .177-caliber BB gun out of Cormier’s vehicle.

Statements were taken from the female complainant, the victim of the threat and also a witness that saw Cormier point the gun.

Cormier is scheduled to appear in the Oxford County Superior Court on Oct. 18.
