ARLINGTON - A Bennington man was arrested over the weekend for assaulting his ex-girlfriend.

Quondell Knight, 25, was arrested early Saturday morning after an investigation by the Vermont State Police determined that Knight had assaulted his former girlfriend.

The State Police were called to a residence at 431 East Arlington Road around 12:30 a.m. on Saturday for a domestic disturbance. The female residing at that location - whose name was not released - told police that Knight had just assaulted her and left the scene when he was picked up by another man.
