FORT KENT, Maine — Police arrested a St. Agatha man on multiple charges following several phone calls from concerned Fort Kent residents on Thursday, Aug. 6.

Shortly before 10 p.m., Fort Kent Police received a report of a disturbance at a residence on South Perley Brook Road.
Officers Trevor Bellefleur and Caleb Jandreau found that Manuel Cyr, 23, had been at the residence prior to their arrival and allegedly broke a window.
Shortly after 10:30 p.m., police received a phone call from a resident of a home on Michigan Settlement Road in the town. The caller reported an unknown man banging on the door of the home. When the officers arrived, the unidentified man was no longer at the home.
