SACO, Maine — The Saco Police Department is searching for a suspect in an alleged attempted robbery and stabbing early Tuesday morning.
A man told police he was walking home from work on Common Street around 1:25 a.m. when a young white male wearing all dark clothes and a ski mask reportedly approached him with a weapon and demanded money, according to a news release from Saco Deputy Police Chief Corey Huntress.

The man who was stabbed was taken to Maine Medical Center with injuries not considered life-threatening, according to Huntress.
