Police responded to a reported domestic violence incident at a Boston Ave. residence last week.

Upon arrival, the alleged victim reportedly told officers that she had been in an altercation with her father, Robert Kneeland, 61, who she said was intoxicated and had grabbed her violently by the arm and raised his fist towards her in a threatening manner.

The officers said that they were aware of a similar incident between Kneeland and the alleged victim earlier in the year.

Upon questioning Kneeland, officers noted the odor of alcohol and that his speech was slurred, indicating intoxication, according to reports.

Kneeland was placed under arrest and charged with assault and battery and witness intimidation.
