A York County man who was arrested Saturday for allegedly choking his girlfriend now faces additional charges after he called her three times from jail, according to Maine State Police.

Joshua Chamberlin

State police responded at about 1 a.m. Saturday to a home on Brock Road in Lyman. Troopers determined that Joshua Chamberlin, 28, had assaulted his girlfriend, causing minor injuries. He was charged with aggravated domestic assault and taken to the York County Jail, where he was denied bail.

Later in the day, a trooper returned to the home to check on the victim. While the trooper was there, Chamberlain made three calls to the victim from jail, according to state police. He was subsequently charged with improper contact prior to the setting of pre-conviction bail.

Chamberlin is expected to make his first court appearance on Monday.
