BRUNSWICK, Maine — A 45-year-old man arrested Aug. 20 for allegedly terrorizing his girlfriend was arrested again Sunday and charged with stalking her.

Robert Alan Smith of Brunswick remained in Cumberland County Jail on Tuesday, held without bail after police said he violated the conditions of his previous release by contacting the alleged victim.

Smith was first arrested at about 1 a.m. Aug. 20 after allegedly kicking in the door of the 52-year-old woman’s home and “putting her in fear for her life,” said Deputy Chief Marc Hagan of the Brunswick Police Department.

Smith was charged with domestic violence terrorizing and criminal mischief as well as with operating under the influence because police said he drove to her home while intoxicated.

Smith was prohibited by bail conditions from contacting the woman, but he allegedly did just that.

On Sunday morning, officers arrested him on Pleasant Hill Road and charged him with domestic violence stalking, as well as on a warrant for violation of conditions of release.

Smith is scheduled to appear in West Bath District Court on Nov. 4.
