BANGOR, Maine — They were barred by court order from being together after a previous assault, but she went to his house anyway and on Sunday morning he assaulted her and was arrested, Bangor police Sgt. Paul Edwards said Monday.
Jeffrey Mayhew, 27, of Bangor and the 38-year-old woman were “together even though she knew they weren’t supposed to,” the sergeant said. “She went there knowing she shouldn’t have.”
Mayhew was arrested in March and charged with domestic violence assault after the couple got into a heated argument and he reportedly pushed her, Edwards said at the time.
Police were called to his Pine Street residence about 11:25 a.m. Sunday and found the victim with visible bruising around the eyes, and head and shoulder pain, Edwards said.
“She was assaulted physically,” the sergeant said.
The woman had a protection from harassment order against Mayhew, who was out on bail. He was arrested and charged with violating the protection order, violating his bail conditions and domestic violence assault.
Mayhew was taken to the Penobscot County Jail after his arrest Sunday morning. He remained behind bars on Tuesday, a jail official said.
Mayhew has a prior disorderly conduct conviction from 2008 and has three marijuana-related convictions, two for possession and one for cultivation, according to court listings printed in the Bangor Daily News.
