A Concord woman will be arraigned next month on numerous assault charges after an alleged domestic incident against her ex-girlfriend, a Pembroke Police officer.
Amanda M. Bacher, 24, of Concord, was arrested at 10:07 p.m. on March 11, on three simple assault (personal weapons) charges.
Officers were sent to Union Street for a report of a past tense domestic assault incident earlier in the day. The officers arrived and met with a Pembroke Police officer who alleged that one of his colleagues was alleging that her ex-girlfriend, Bacher, assaulted her.
According to a Concord Police Department arrest report, the woman alleged that Bacher had come to her home and began fighting with her over a supposed new relationship she was involved in with a male officer in the department. Bacher was allegedly “upset by it” and had confronted her ex and allegedly assaulted her.
The Concord officer spoke with the woman and she stated that the couple broke up about a year ago but were arguing via text message the week before.
After the last argument, the woman blocked Bacher from her phone, she stated.
At around 5 p.m. that day, Bacher allegedly showed up to the woman’s apartment unannounced, knocking on her backdoor. The woman reportedly opened the door and asked what she wanted and Bacher allegedly began yelling at her.
The woman invited Bacher in because she didn’t want to disturb her neighbors and had hoped to get a key to her apartment back. Bacher allegedly began questioning the woman about her new relationship and the woman said she told her ex the two were just friends. Bacher allegedly became upset, grabbed the woman’s shirt, and began pushing her into a refrigerator.
The woman reportedly tried to calm Bacher down but the arguing continued.
During the altercation, Bacher allegedly gained access to the woman’s phone and began reading text messages between the two officers and became upset again. Bacher allegedly grabbed the woman by the neck and backed her into a kitchen door and pushed her again.
Later, the woman alleged, Bacher grabbed her again and began shaking her but the woman pushed her away.
The Concord officer reported seeing redness around the woman’s neck and found scratches on her back.
While at the apartment, another officer allegedly saw Bacher drive by the home, pull into the driveway, and then leave. The officer went and followed the car and pulled Bacher over on Maple Street.
The officer alleged that Bacher was “visibly upset” when pulled over. After some conversation, Bacher was arrested.
Bacher was later released on $2,000 personal recognizance bail. She will be arraigned on April 15.
