A former Maine state representative is facing charges that he assaulted and robbed a woman over the weekend. Christopher Muse was arrested Sunday at his South Portland home. Police said a 44-year-old woman reported that she and Muse got into a dispute Friday night while meeting on a shoreline walkway. The woman told police Muse knocked her down and kicked her in the head before taking her money and cellphone. Lieutenant Frank Clark told the Portland Press Herald that Muse and the woman knew each other years ago and that Friday was their first meeting since recently reconnecting on the Internet.
