SKOWHEGAN — A Skowhegan man who allegedly assaulted two people with a two-by-four in January in Canaan was among 16 people indicted last week by a Somerset County grand jury.

Daniel W. Gordon, 26, is charged with two counts of felony assault and with domestic violence assault and violating a protection order, both misdemeanors, on New Year’s Day.

An indictment is not a finding of guilt, but is a determination that enough evidence in a case is present to proceed with a trial.

Also indicted were:
