WINSLOW, Maine — A man faces charges after allegedly stabbing another man six times in Winslow on Wednesday, officials said.
Justin Boucher, 21, of Winlow was arrested on charges of elevated aggravated assault and two misdemeanors for violating conditions of release after allegedly stabbing a 65-year-old Waterville man on Wednesday morning in Winslow, according to police.
Officers were called around 10 a.m. about a man walking down the road bleeding heavily on Lasalle Street, Winslow Police Chief Leonard Macdaid told NEWS CENTER Maine.
When officers arrived at the scene, the victim was gone. Following a blood trail left behind, officers eventually found Bradford in an apartment on Monument Street. He didn't know who stabbed him, police said.
The victim was taken to an area hospital.
Around 12 p.m., Macdaid said police found Boucher on Clinton Avenue. He jumped out a window and led officers on a chase by foot, according to Macdaid. He was arrested a block away.
Police said Boucher also had knife wounds and that he had been cut. Boucher was reportedly taken to a hospital, then the Kennebec County Correctional Facility. He is being held without bail.
Macdaid expects Boucher to go in front of a judge on Thursday or Friday.
Police believe the Wednesday incident is isolated and there is no threat to the public.
