City Councilor Corey Robinson turned himself in to authorities Thursday morning, following an alleged domestic assault.
Robinson appeared before Lowell District Court Judge Michael Fabbri Friday morning. He was charged with Domestic Assault and Battery on a Family Member or Household Member and ordered to stay away from the alleged victim. He will also wear a GPS monitoring device.
Police reports have not been made available yet, but according to the court documents, Robinson and the alleged victim have been in a “dating relationship” and that there have been prior incidents involving the two. The documents also state that on the night in question, “the defendant is alleged to have put his hands forcibly around the victims neck and pulled her hair.”
Efforts to reach Robinson for comment have been unsuccessful. The District 2 Representative easily won re-election to his seat in the November 7 municipal election.
