James E. Steen of Lincoln was arrested May 6

Milford police have arrested 26-year-old James E. Steen of Lincoln after an alleged assault.

MPD spokesman Sgt. Robert Masten said that at about 8:11 p.m. Saturday, May 6, officers were called to a home in the 600 block of Northwest Front Street to investigate reports of a fight. The officers contacted Steen, who allegedly had assaulted a person in the home. Because he appeared to be inebriated, the Carlisle Fire Company was brought in to take Steen to Bayhealth-Milford Hospital to check his level of intoxication.

As a result, Steen is charged with third-degree assault and was ordered held at the Sussex Correctional Institution on a $500 secured bond.

He also was ordered to have no contact with the victim, Masten said.
