A Prince William County police officer was arrested Friday for a domestic assault inside of a home in Dumfries, Virginia, according to police.

Forty-year-old Robert Edward Donnan was charged with domestic assault and battery. Police say Donnan has a $6,000 unsecured bond.

On Sept. 13, police say a 51-year-old woman reported that she and Donnan got into an argument which escalated at a home in the 15500 block of Laurel Ridge Road.

During the argument, Donnan attacked the woman, who sustained minor injuries.

Donnan will be reassigned to an administrative role and his "police powers" were suspended while an internal investigation is conducted, according to police.
