MANCHESTER - Police arrested a city man Wednesday night on charges accusing him of punching a woman several times in the head and face after she accused him of talking to other women on the Internet.
The incident began about 6:20 p.m. when police received a call about a domestic disturbance at 416 Maple St. A man answered the door when officers arrived, and he told them the man they wanted had just run out the rear apartment door.
Officers quickly located Lewis in a yard just south of the apartment building and ordered him to stop. Instead, police said he took off running, but they caught up to him as he ran between houses and crossed Merrimack Street.
At that point, police said Lewis surrendered and they arrested him for simple assault, resisting arrest and obstructing the report of a crime.
Lewis was arraigned in 9th Circuit Court, Manchester District Division, Thursday morning, and bail was set at $2,500 cash/surety, with conditions barring contact with Maclellan. Trial was set for April 3.
