SKOWHEGAN — Local police arrested an Oxford man on a warrant, according to a news release from the Skowhegan Police Department.

Monday around 11 a.m., Skowhegan police officer Joshua York was contacted by Detective Sgt. Zachary Bisson of the Oxford Police Department about a warrant for Joshua Akerman, 31, of Oxford, on charges of domestic violence and domestic violence terrorizing.
