On Friday,  at approximately 10:15 AM, officers from the Cumberland Police Department responded to a residence on Boone Street for a disturbance.  Police contacted a female subject who reported that she had been assaulted by Joshua Sills.  The victim had sustained minor injuries.  Officers contacted Sills who was not cooperative.  After investigation, it was determined that Sills would be placed under arrest for the assault.  When officers attempted to place Sills in hand restraints, he resisted and attempted to pull away from the officers.  A brief struggle ensued and police were eventually able to place Sills in handcuffs.  As officers were escorting Sills outside to be transported, he began yelling at the victim, attracting the attention of the neighbors.  Sills was transported to police headquarters and processed.  He was taken before the District Court Commissioner where he was remanded to the Allegany County Detention Center on a $15,000 bond.
