Man charged with assault in home invasion attack

July 10, 2019

BRIDGTON, Maine (AP) — Police say they have arrested a man for attacking a car dealer and his wife inside their home.

Bridgton police have charged 37-year-old Michael Holden of Bridgton with aggravated assault, burglary and possessing a scheduled drug.

It was unclear Wednesday whether Holden has an attorney.

A Cumberland County Jail official says Holden was still being held Wednesday evening.

Police allege Holden assaulted Robert and Margaret MacDonald at their Long Lake home. Authorities say they responded to a 911 call from the home just after 8 a.m.

Police say the couple didn’t know Holden and are being treated for serious head injuries.

Robert MacDonald is co-owner of two car dealerships in Maine and New Hampshire. He and his wife are both 77 years old.
