At around noon on Saturday, the Aroostook County Sheriff's Office received a report of a domestic disturbance on Scovil Street in Mars Hill, according to Sheriff Darrell Crandall. A neighbor reported that a woman had been assaulted and that the man had left in a vehicle.

After collecting some initial information, deputies were able to locate the vehicle and arrested the suspect. Cody Ayotte of Easton is charged with Domestic Violence Assault and Criminal Trespass.

Ayotte had previously been banned from the apartment complex where the alleged assault took place, Crandall said. He was transported to the Aroostook County Jail in Houlton where he is being held without bail. He is expected to appear before a judge on Monday.

The Sheriff said the victim will not be identified.
