A Searsport woman who is accused of helping her 17-year-old son to fight a 13-year-old juvenile is now facing charges in connection with the Sept. 29 incident.

Police with the Waldo County Sheriff’s Office have charged Gloria Warren, 39, of Searsport, with Class E criminal attempted assault and Class D endangering the welfare of a child, according to a press release issued Tuesday, Oct. 5.

Police became aware of the incident when a Lincolnville woman called to report that a 17-year-old boy had assaulted her 13-year-old son at a school. Deputy Kevin Littlefield responded to the complaint, and Littlefield’s investigation revealed that the 13-year-old assault victim and another juvenile had had an argument earlier in the school day. The other juvenile involved reportedly asked the 17-year-old to fight the 13-year-old.

Lt. Jason Trundy said the 17-year-old asked his mother, who was later identified as Warren, to drive him to Lincolnville. Warren allegedly did so, and once the 17-year-old located the 13-year-old victim, a fight ensued.

Trundy said at one point, Warren interfered with the efforts of a bystander to stop the fight.

Warren is scheduled to appear at Fifth District Court in Belfast Tuesday, Dec. 7.
