ALFRED, Maine - A Rochester man is being held on $2,500 bail after his indictment on bail jumping charges in connection with his arrest in a domestic violence and terrorizing incident in North Berwick in July.
Zachary J. Jewett, 27, of Jeremiah Lane, Rochester, N.H., is accused of felony domestic violence criminal threatening with a weapon as well as terrorizing, a Class D crime.
The two charges were brought in connection with an incident that occurred in North Berwick on July 3.

North Berwick Police were not immediately available for comment on the charges against Jewett that originated there in July.
The bail jumping and DV threatening charge are both punishable by up to five years in prison apiece.
