Waterboro man accused of threatening ex-girlfriend with handgun

CORNISH, Maine — A Waterboro man was arrested Sunday after he threatened a former girlfriend and another man with a handgun, according to the York County Sheriff’s Office.

Marcus Lafebvre, 28, was charged with criminal threatening with a dangerous weapon, a Class C crime, and criminal threatening, a Class D crime, according to the sheriff’s office.

The man and Lafebvre’s former girlfriend were leaving a residence in Cornish on Sunday afternoon when they found a vehicle blocking the driveway.

When the man asked the driver, Lafebvre’s father, to move the vehicle, Marcus Lafebvre allegedly pointed a .45-caliber handgun at the man and his former girlfriend, according to police. The man also was armed and displayed a gun as he retreated from the car to call police.

Lafebvre, police said, had been threatening his former girlfriend and her new boyfriend for several weeks, and he had been given a formal warning by Deputy Gil Hudson not to have contact with either of them about a month ago.

Deputy Heath Mains also issued Lafebvre an order to cease harassment because he was sending threats by text message to both victims, according to police.

Lafebvre was arrested and is being held on a $100,000 bail in York County Jail.

Additional charges may be filed in connection with his noncompliance with the no contact order.
