Fall River woman facing charges after reported assault on ex, vandalizing vehicle


BURRILLVILLE – A 27-year-old woman was arrested and charged with multiple counts of domestic crimes including felony breaking and entering, after what she told police was an attempt to make amends with her ex boyfriend.

Arielle McCain of Fall River was also charged with assault, refusal to relinquish a telephone and disorderly conduct after her ex, a 33-year-old Burrillville man, called police on Wednesday, Nov. 24.

The victim told police that he dated McCain and had ended the relationship, but that she kept showing up at his home uninvited.

On the previous night, the man told police McCain had refused to leave his home and had vandalized his vehicle, stealing the valve stem caps from his tires.

When she returned on Wednesday, the victim said he told McCain to leave, threatening to call police, and she grabbed him by his jacket, attempting to take his cell phone. The victim escaped and retreated into the home, but McCain forced her way in. He got her back out of the house and locked the door, and security footage showed her again trying to get in.

While the victim was speaking to officers, McCain reportedly kept calling and texting his cell phone, and police advised him to tell her to return to the home. She came back and told officers she was attempting to, “save their relationship,” and when asked about the assault, said she had, ‘hugged,” him to explain the attempts to take his phone.

McCain was arraigned in 6th District Court and was released with a no contact order. She has a pre-arraignment conference scheduled for Feb. 23.
