CUMBERLAND — A domestic assault victim required medical treatment at the scene following an incident at a South Street residence Wednesday.

The victim sustained multiple injuries in the incident that led to the arrest of Michael A. Butler, 25, on charges of second-degree assault, disorderly conduct, obstructing and hindering, reckless endangerment and fraud/personal identification to avoid prosecution.
