UNITY, Maine — Police said a Dixmont man was arrested this weekend after a concerned neighbor alerted officials Saturday evening about a possible assault she could hear happening in a nearby apartment, where a woman was yelling for a man to get off her.

When an investigating officers arrived at the Route 9 apartment complex to see what was going on, the alleged victim at first did not cooperate, according to Chief Deputy Jeff Trafton of the Waldo County Sheriff’s Office.

Deputy Kyle Wasiela discovered that Clifford Dupray, 28, was still in the home and that there was an outstanding warrant for his arrest on a failure-to-appear charge. As Dupray was getting ready to go, Trafton said, he and the woman began to argue.

“She made an admission that he had assaulted her,” Trafton said.

The woman told police that Dupray had pushed her, grabbed her hair and wouldn’t let her leave.

He was charged with domestic violence assault and taken to Waldo County Jail in Belfast to be booked.
