Lyman Man Arrested for Violating Bail

Joshua Ellis, 21, of Lyman

A Lyman man is facing charges after violating his bail by reportedly breaking into a residence to assault a victim before fleeing from the scene. 

On May 2, 2020 at approximately 10:45 p.m. Troopers in Troop A received a 911 hang up call from a residence in Lyman. Upon call back information was relayed that an assault may have taken place at the residence. When Troopers arrived on scene they located a male victim that had multiple lacerations to his head. Investigation revealed that Joshua Ellis, 21, of Lyman, had forced entry into the residence, committed the assault and fled the scene in a vehicle prior to Troopers arrival. Ellis was currently out of jail on two sets of bail conditions from an incident on March 25, 2020, where he assaulted the same victim and also attempted to burn that family members home down. In addition to these bail conditions, Ellis held an active warrant for his arrest for Violating his Bail Conditions.

Ellis was ultimately located by State Police and the Kennebunk Police Department at a residence in Kennebunk. While there, Ellis barricaded himself in a bathroom with a knife and refused to exit the residence. Troopers and Officers continued to try to establish a dialogue with Ellis to get him to exit the residence peacefully. While these efforts were under way, Ellis jumped out of a bathroom window and was taken into custody after a brief struggle.

Ellis was transported to Southern Maine Healthcare in Biddeford to be evaluated and then to the York County Jail. Ellis has been charged with Aggravated Assault Class B, Burglary Class B, Violating Conditions of Release Class C, Refusing to Submit to Arrest or Detention Class D in addition to his warrant for Violating Conditions of Release. Ellis is currently being held without bail.

The State Police is committed to our relationships with all Law Enforcement and would like to thank the Biddeford Police Department and the Kennebunk Police department for their assistance in getting a violent fugitive off the streets.
