BANGOR, Maine — A local man is facing multiple charges after a reported domestic disturbance on Sidney Street Monday night, according to police.
Bangor police Officers Chris Blanchard and Josh Kuhn responded to a residence around 9:30 p.m. after it was reported a man later identified as Kenneth Hilton, 37, was involved in a domestic disturbance and was armed with a butcher knife, according to Bangor police Sgt. Paul Edwards.
When the officers arrived, dispatch informed them Hilton had cut his girlfriend on the leg with the butcher knife, and she had refused medical attention, according to Edwards.
Blanchard and Kuhn encountered what Edwards described as a chaotic scene during which several people were arguing. Police discovered Hilton had dropped the knife and was in a bedroom.
Police went to the bedroom and found Hilton was uncooperative despite another man restraining him, Edwards said. Blanchard and Kuhn placed him under arrest and charged him with aggravated assault, a Class B felony, domestic violence assault and refusing to submit to arrest. He was brought to Penobscot County Jail, where he remained Tuesday.
