Posted

PORTSMOUTH — A 29-year-old Portsmouth man was charged with domestic assault and resisting arrest following an incident at his home on Sunday, Aug. 14.

At about 3:35 p.m., officers responded to 44 Maize Corn Road to investigate a report of an altercation between two brothers. 

After speaking with the two men, officers determined that probable cause existed to arrest Hector Junior Jimenez, of that address, according to police. 

While officers attempted to secure Jimenez in handcuffs, he resisted arrest by tensing his body and yelling at officers, according to police. 

The victim was a 25-year-old man who lives in Portsmouth, police said.

Here are some more recent highlights from the Portsmouth Police reports:

Miguel Alexander Soler Guerrero, 23, of 57 Cross St., Apt. 2, Central Falls, was charged with cyber-harassment, illegal possession of a weapon other than firearms, and simple assault. Officers responded to a Baylies Avenue home around 7:30 a.m. after receiving a call from a 20-year-old Portsmouth woman who reported that the suspect, her ex-boyfriend, was outside her residence honking his car horn and yelling. 

Officers determined that Soler had an outstanding warrant for cyber-harassment, and had thrown an object at the woman, police said. A search of Soler produced a knife that was longer than three inches, according to police. 

Two people were arrested after officers responded to the Newport RV Park, 181 Bradford Ave. (Melville Ponds Campground), around 3:35 p.m. to investigate a report of a possible domestic disturbance. When they arrived, a vehicle driven by Joseph D.
