Groton — A local man was arrested Tuesday night after police said he assaulted a woman in the presence of a child.

Donjuan Martinez, 42, of 62 Mumford Ave., was charged with second-degree assault, risk of injury to a minor, interfering with a 911 call, third-degree criminal mischief and unlawful restraint.

Police said they responded to 21 Branford Ave. at about 9:20 p.m. for a report of a domestic violence assault. Police said the female was assaulted in the presence of a 9-year-old child.

The victim sustained head and facial injuries and was taken to Lawrence + Memorial Hospital, where she was treated and released.

Martinez is being held on a $99,000 bond, pending his arraignment today in New London Superior Court.

Martinez has an extensive criminal history, including convictions for assault, breach of peace and drug possession.
