Blackstone Valley

PAWTUCKET, R.I. (WPRI) — A Connecticut State Police trooper has been suspended after he was charged with assaulting his girlfriend in Pawtucket.

Trooper Marwing Pena, 30, was arrested in the early-morning hours of March 20 after police responded to a report of a domestic disturbance at a home on Daggett Avenue, according to the incident report.

Upon learning of his arrest, Connecticut State Police said a supervisor seized his department-issued firearms, badge, identification and cruiser.

An internal affairs investigation is underway.

Pena has been with the department since October 2018, according to state police.

He was expected to be arraigned Thursday in Providence District Court on charges of simple assault and disorderly conduct.
