BRATTLEBORO — In a series of arrests over the weekend, Brattleboro police apprehended five individuals involved in various disturbances, including domestic disputes and an assault that resulted in a stabbing.

On Jan. 12, officers responded to Groundworks on South Main Street, where Liliana Vandertuin had reportedly become combative with staff after being asked to leave earlier in the day.

Despite police attempts to persuade her to depart, Vandertuin refused and was taken into custody on a $200 bail.

The same day, police were called to a residence on Valley Street for a domestic dispute.

Anthony B. Hewitt was arrested on charges of domestic assault, disorderly conduct, and violating court-ordered conditions of release.

His bail was set at $10,000, with a court appearance scheduled for Jan. 16 at Windham County Superior Court.

On Jan. 13, a reported stabbing at an apartment complex on Canal Street led to the arrest of Michael F. Favreau.

Favreau allegedly assaulted an individual and stabbed them multiple times.

Following a 45-minute standoff, he was detained and held on a $5,000 bail.

He is also due in court on Jan. 16.

Later that day, the Brattleboro Co-Op became the scene of an assault, resulting in the arrest of Amber V. March and a 17-year-old juvenile for simple assault.

The juvenile was cited for a later date at Windham Family Court, while March received a citation to appear at Windham Superior Court on March 26.

The final arrest occurred on Jan. 14 at the Comfort Inn, where Andre D. Couch was charged with strangling and assaulting a female companion.

Couch was held on a $1,000 bail and is expected in court on Jan. 16.

The Brattleboro Police Department reminds the public that all individuals arrested or cited are presumed innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.

Additional arrests are anticipated as the investigation continues.
