BREWER, Maine — A Brewer woman is facing a felony charge after she allegedly assaulted her boyfriend on Sunday evening, according to police.

Bianca Trask, 19, who was convicted of domestic violence assault in 2012, now faces up to five years in jail on the felony charge, according to Brewer Deputy Chief Jason Moffitt.

Officer Mike Wilson and Cpl. Boyd Kelly had been dispatched to a Highland Avenue apartment for a reported assault shortly after 9 p.m. Sunday, according to Moffitt.

Moffitt said Trask’s boyfriend had scratches on his face consistent with an assault when officers arrived to question him. Upon examining the residence, police found it to be in shambles.

Blinds were ripped, TV trays were broken and pictures were torn off of walls, the deputy chief said.

Trask was taken into custody without incident and booked on charges of domestic violence assault and criminal mischief, Moffitt said. She was taken to Penobscot County Jail and later released on bail.
