WATERVILLE, Maine — A Waterville man with a long list of assault convictions is accused of assaulting a female family member, police said.

Paul Gombos, 26, who has five assault convictions dating back to 2004 according to Waterville Deputy Chief Charles Rumsey, was arrested Thursday evening around 8:30 p.m. on May Street.

Gombos and the woman were arguing and when things grew heated, Gombos pushed her to the floor of the residence, according to Rumsey.

In addition to the assault convictions, Gombos was also convicted of domestic violence assault in 2010, which levied the new charge to a Class C felony, Rumsey said.

Gombos was brought to Kennebec County Jail and later released on bail. His first court date is scheduled for May 28.
