A Bath man was arrested on domestic violence charges following a manhunt in Brunswick Friday.
Brunswick police said Patrick Ridley, 28, of Washington Street was arrested at 10:30 p.m. after a manhunt in the Franklin Street area of Brunswick.
Brunswick and Lisbon police had been investigating a domestic violence charge involving Ridley’s girlfriend. Police confronted Ridley near Franklin Street and he fled on foot. A police dog tracked Ridley to a backyard where he was hiding.
He was charged with kidnapping, aggravated assault and misuse of a public benefit card.
Police said other charges may be filed against Ridley who was being held at Cumberland County Jail after bail was denied. He is scheduled to appear in Portland Superior Court on June 17.
Details about the domestic violence incident were withheld by police who said releasing them would compromise their investigation.
