Woman arrested for felony assault

BANGOR An area woman was arrested for allegedly assaulting her boyfriend with a utility knife and is facing felony charges.

On Jan. 5, around 1a.m., Officer Wade Betters reported that a 40-year-old Bangor man came to the station to report he was assaulted by his girlfriend. Betters learned that the victim rents an apartment and that his girlfriend, Airdrie McLean, 27, of Bangor, spent the night. Police said the victim claimed that the couple had gotten into an argument when McLean grabbed a utility knife and attacked the victim, who had cuts on his forearms consistent with such an attack. The unidentified man said that the assault had occurred earlier in the evening, but initially he had been hesitant to report it and get her in trouble. After she had slept for a few hours she woke up and began fighting with him again, at which point he said he'd had enough and came to report it to authorities.

Betters went to the apartment and arrested Airdrie McLean, 27, of Bangor, for class B felony aggravated assault and domestic assault and transported her to the Penobscot County Jail.
