Steven Warfield of Skowhegan was charged with assault, burglary, terrorizing, aggravated criminal trespass and a probation hold, according to police.

Warfield was being held Monday evening at the Somerset County Jail in Madison.

Chief David Bucknam of the Skowhegan Police Department said Dillon Howes, 26, of Skowhegan called emergency services at about 9:15 a.m. Sunday to report Warfield had come to his house on Canaan Road, knocked on a door and then made his way inside.

“(Warfield) proceeded to assault Dillon, as he owed him $25 for marijuana he had sold him,” Bucknam said.

Warfield then left in a red sedan, police said.

Deputies from the Somerset County Sheriff’s Office located Warfield in Canaan, took him into custody and brought him to the Skowhegan Police Department.

Howes suffered minor injuries to his neck and back but refused treatment, Bucknam said.
