OLD TOWN, Maine — A fight between relatives on Water Street late Monday led to one man being arrested after he refused to heed police warnings, Old Town police Capt. Kyle Smart said Tuesday.
Lydon E. Cacavollia, 27, took a cellphone, charger and a pack of cigarettes from a relative after fighting with him at around 10:40 p.m. in the apartment building they both reside in, the police captain said.
The victim did not want to press charges and only wanted his items returned, but Cacavollia did not answer his door when police knocked the first time. After leaving and being called back about 20 minutes later when Cacavollia reportedly pounded on the door of his victim, Officers Debbie Holmes and Jim Fearon were able to speak with him.
“At first he denied he took anything,” Smart said.
After the phone and charger were returned, police repeatedly warned Cacavollia to stay away from his relative.
Even though Cacavollia agreed to stay home, “about 10 seconds after [Holmes and Fearon left], they heard a door open and close and then him banging on the door” of his relative, the police captain said.
Cacavollia was arrested and charged with criminal trespass and taken to the Penobscot County Jail in Bangor.
He has a lengthy criminal record, according to court listings printed in the Bangor Daily News. Cacavollia has convictions over the last five years for disorderly conduct, refusing to submit to arrest, operating a vehicle with a suspended or revoked license, failing to appear for court, violating a condition of release, operating a vehicle while under the influence of intoxicants and possession of marijuana, the BDN listings state.
