    A Maine woman ran over her boyfriend with her car after she allegedly walked in on him attempting to sexually assault his 12-year-old niece, according to police.

    On Saturday around 11:30 p.m., police responded to East Neck Road in Nobleboro after a domestic disturbance was reported. Investigation yielded that Linda Currier, 63, walked in on her boyfriend, James Oliver, 48, attempting to sexually assault his niece. Oliver is a convicted sex offender.

    A fight ensued between them, which resulted in Currier running over Oliver with her car in the driveway of the residence. Both of them had been consuming alcohol.

    Oliver was transported to Miles Memorial Hospital and then to Maine Medical Center for treatment of serious, but non-life-threatening injuries to his leg. He was later transported to Two Bridges Regional Jail and is charged with attempted gross sexual assault, unlawful sexual touching, and failing to comply with the sex offender registration act for not updating his address.

    Currier was charged with operating under the influence and aggravated assault at Two Bridges Regional Jail. She was released on bail pending her court appearance.

    The young girl was taken away from the scene and is in the custody of her family.
