Maine Good Samaritan Bitten; Cruiser Window Broken by Suspect

Police say a good Samaritan was bitten when he attempted to intervene in a domestic violence assault early Sunday morning.


FARMINGTON -- Police say a good Samaritan was bitten when he attempted to intervene in a domestic violence assault early Sunday morning.

Kevin Crandall, 27, of Wilton faces a variety of charges stemming from the 1:40 a.m. incident in the parking lot of McDonald's, police Chief Jack Peck said.

Crandall was allegedly hitting a woman who was with him in the parking lot when a 26-year-old man tried to help her. Crandall took a swing at him and they got into a wrestling match. During the tussle, Crandall bit the witness four or five times on the hand and arm, Peck said.

After police arrested Crandall, he kicked out the back door and a back side window of the cruiser.

Crandall was arrested on charges of domestic violence assault, disorderly conduct, criminal mischief, assault and violating conditions of release.

Both the witness and victim were checked by NorthStar Ambulance personnel Sunday but neither was transported to a hospital.

Peck estimated damage to the cruiser at around $1,000.

Crandall bailed from Franklin County Detention Center late Tuesday afternoon on $300 cash. He is scheduled to appear in court on Oct. 6.
