WATERVILLE, Maine — A man with a history of domestic violence offenses is facing a felony charge after an altercation with his girlfriend on Friday, police said.

An anonymous person called police shortly after midnight to report James O’Clair, 23, of Waterville and his girlfriend were arguing, according to Waterville Deputy Chief Charles Rumsey.

When officers arrived on the scene, they observed a window that had been broken from inside the apartment, Rumsey said. After speaking with the witness and surveying the damage, police made entry and searched the apartment.

Officers found O’Clair and the woman in a bedroom and separated the pair, Rumsey said. O’Clair was taken into custody and charged with domestic violence assault, a Class C felony due to prior convictions.

The woman was not injured while O’Clair was taken to the Kennebec County Jail. His first court appearance is scheduled for Jan. 15.
