ALFRED — Police used a Taser to subdue an Alfred man Monday night after a young girl called police to report that a high-powered weapon had been fired several times at a home on Sanford Road.

Police arrested Thomas Prioa, 40, on a charge of domestic violence reckless conduct with a firearm and with aggravated assault.

Maine State Police troopers, York County sheriff’s deputies and Sanford police responded to the incident.

When police arrived, the girl, who is related to Prioa, was standing alongside the road. They were the only two people at the home at the time. State police Sgt. Bill Ross declined to say how old the girl is but described her as acting bravely. It’s not clear what the relationship is between Prioa and the girl.

Prioa is accused of firing the gun inside and outside the house on Route 202. Also, neighbors told police that Prioa had just thrown a rock through the window, injuring a person inside.

Police found Prioa, at that point unarmed, between two houses. He was uncooperative, Ross said, and a deputy used a Taser to subdue him.

Police found drugs and more than 10 firearms at the house. Ross said it was too early to determine whether the drugs played a role in the man’s behavior.

The Maine Department of Health and Human Services was working to find a safe place for the girl to live, Ross said.

Prioa is being held at York County Jail pending an appearance in Springvale District Court scheduled for Wednesday.
