A man and woman were discovered lying in the road when police responded to a reported home invasion in New Gloucester on Thursday night, and the pair were eventually charged with assaulting a man they had been visiting.

Dale Eldridge, 42, who lists as his address as the Oxford Street Shelter in Portland, was charged with aggravated assault, aggravated criminal trespass and aggravated criminal mischief and was being held at the Cumberland County Jail in Portland on $25,000 bail. Kristin Dunphy, 33, who police say lives in Portland but has no fixed address, was charged with aggravated criminal trespass and simple assault and was being held on $1,500 bail.

Eldridge and Dunphy had been inside a home at 494 Snow Hill Road watching TV when they were asked to leave by the 45-year-old resident, who was home with his mother, according to the Cumberland County Sheriff’s Office.

The couple, whom authorities described as extremely intoxicated, left but then returned about 20 minutes later, just before midnight. Eldridge broke a window on the door to get back into the building, then attacked the resident with a broom handle or wooden cane, the sheriff’s office said. Dunphy also assaulted the resident, the sheriff’s office said.

The couple then went outside and smashed the windows of the man’s pickup truck, the sheriff’s office said.

When deputies arrived, they discovered Dunphy lying off to the side of the road and Eldridge lying on the pavement.

Both were holding cans of beer, the sheriff’s office said.

The victim had cuts to his face but refused medical attention. Dunphy and Eldridge also had blood on them and had minor injuries.
