SEARSMONT — A Belfast woman with bail conditions was arrested after she and two minors from Waldo County assaulted a 14-year-old female at her home Wednesday morning.

Maine State Police say Victoria Demmons, 22, of Belfast felt challenged by the 14-year old’s social media activity and decided to confront her at her home.

In the early morning hours of Dec. 1, police responded to a report of a fight at a New England Road home. The victim’s father and his girlfriend live at the residence and both attempted to stop the assault, with limited success, police said.

The investigation revealed that Demmons and two other females, ages 15 and 17, were involved in the incident. Digital evidence collected by police highlighted a back-and-forth exchange among the 14-year-old, Demmons and the other two juveniles about a past relationship. 

Police said threats were made, including a threat to stab and kill the 14-year-old. Demmons apparently made one trip to the New England Road home, left and returned with the two juveniles to continue the assault.

After departing Searsmont in a vehicle, Demmons and the two juveniles were located by Belfast police at a Circle K gas station, where they were detained.

Cpl. Scott Quintero of the Maine State Police traveled to the Belfast scene and interviewed Demmons, who later admitted she had been at home drinking alcohol. While being interviewed, Quintero said, Demmons showed signs of impairment and after a field sobriety test was arrested and taken to Waldo County Jail. 

Court documents show Demmons was charged with criminal operating under the influence, disorderly conduct and violating conditions of release. Bail was set at $500 cash for a supervised release with conditions she not use or possess alcohol or illegal drugs.

Demmons is scheduled to be back in court Jan. 11, 2022.

According to police, the investigation continues and additional charges may be sought.
