A 35-year-old Owls Head man who had been sought by the Knox County Sheriff’s Office in connection to an alleged serious assault against a woman on Thursday was arrested Friday night.

Robert Demmons Jr. was arrested by Knox County Sgt. Jacob Boyington after receiving information from Rockland Police Officer William Smith, Sheriff Donna Dennison said Saturday morning in a press release. He was arrested without incident, taken to the Knox County Jail and released after posting $2,500 cash bail.

The sheriff thanked the community for its help, including Smith and the Rockland Police Department, and said that the public provided tips after her office alerted the media.

Dennison said the victim was hospitalized with injuries, after she was beaten and burned with cigarettes.

Demmons was not at the scene of the assault when officers arrived Oct. 21.

Detective Dwight Burtis, the domestic violence investigator for the department, obtained arrest warrants in Knox County Superior Court for the suspect, the sheriff said in an earlier statement. The warrants were for class A aggravated assault, class B criminal threatening and class D obstructing the report of a crime.
