WATERVILLE — A Waterville man was arrested Thursday after reportedly striking his ex-girlfriend, grabbing her by the neck and banging her head off a counter, according to Waterville police Chief Joseph Massey.

Massey said Friday that Tyheen S. Walker, 33, of 19B Chaplin St., did not make bail and was taken to Kennebec County Jail in Augusta. Walker is slated to appear in Waterville District Court Jan. 16, Massey said.

At about 5:30 p.m. Thursday, police got a report of a possible domestic violence assault at Walker’s address, Massey said. They went to the home and spoke with a woman who alleged that Walker struck her more than once and threatened her, “grabbed her by the neck and at some point banged her head off the counter,” Massey said.

He said two young children in the home witnessed the assault.

“As they (officers) tried to talk with her, he was very uncooperative. He was extremely intoxicated and he tried to get back at the victim while officers were talking to her,” Massey said.

Police arrested Walker and charged him with domestic violence assault. He was on probation at the time, so police called his probation officer and Walker was placed on a probation hold, Massey said. Walker could not make the $500 bail and was taken to Kennebec County Jail.
