Portsmouth man charged in alleged domestic altercation

Posted

PORTSMOUTH — A 30-year-old local man was charged on Thursday, Jan. 21, with domestic vandalism, with malicious injury to property; and domestic disorderly conduct. 

The charges were connected to an incident on Dec. 10, when officers were dispatched to the home of Erik W. Lee, 30, of 78 President Ave., around 7:10 p.m. for a report of a disturbance.

Mr. Lee was not there, but the investigation determined he had engaged in a disorderly altercation with multiple people at the residence, according to police. (An 80-year-old Portsmouth woman was a victim, police said.) 

Officers also observed multiple items in the home to be damaged, police said. 

Mr. Lee turned himself in at 2nd District Court on Thursday morning and later arrived at the police station to be processed, according to police. 

Here are some other recent highlights from the Portsmouth Police report:
