WATERVILLE — Police arrested a woman Monday at her apartment on Spring Street, charging her with a felony and misdemeanor for allegedly threatening her partner over a period of two days.

Dina Passno, 37, of Waterville, was arrested on charges of assault and criminal threatening with a weapon, a class C felony; and domestic violence assault, a class D misdemeanor. The charges could result in up to six years in jail and fines of up to $7,000.

Police responded to a call reporting the incident around 7 p.m., said Deputy Chief Bill Bonney, of the Waterville Police Department.

Bonney said Tuesday that Passno and her partner had been in an ongoing disagreement for two days, during which time Passno allegedly threatened to stab her partner with a knife multiple times.

Passno also reportedly had hit the door with the knife while her partner was on the other side; Bonney said police found marks on the door from the knife. Passno’s partner had minor injuries that did not require immediate medical attention, police said.

Passno was being held in the Kennebec County jail in Augusta until she can appear before a judge, who will set bail, That probably will happen Wednesday, Kennebec County District Attorney Maeghan Maloney said.


Passno is scheduled to appear in court Aug. 8.
