Steven Thomas McNamee (40) was arrested Thursday and charged with Second Degree Assault and First Degree Burglary. McNamee’s charges stem from a December 16th incident where he entered an Ashland apartment and assaulted the homeowner with a blunt object. The homeowner struggled with McNamee for several seconds before McNamee fled the home. The homeowner, an acquaintance of McNamee, sustained minor injuries during the attack. McNamee was arrested by Ashland detectives at a home on Williamsburg Circle in Medford. A blunt object matching the description of the weapon used in the assault was recovered during the execution of a search warrant on McNamee’s vehicle.
