ST. ALBANS, Maine — Police are still not releasing the identities of the two men involved in a stabbing incident Sunday night on Todd’s Corner Road.

Detective Lt. Carl Gottardi of the Somerset County Sheriff’s Department said Monday evening that the case remains under investigation and is being reviewed by the District Attorney’s Office. Unless there is an arrest, he said the names of those involved would not be released.

Gottardi confirmed that the stabbing victim had forced his way into a home on Todd’s Corner Road and struck the male occupant of the home several times with a baseball bat.

During the altercation, the intruder was stabbed several times in the stomach and chest. He then fled the residence but was soon found by Deputy Michael Ross, who was responding to a 911 call from the residence. Ross called for an ambulance.

The intruder was treated at Sebasticook Valley Hospital in Pittsfield and then airlifted to Eastern Maine Medical Center in Bangor, where he is in stable condition, Gottardi said.

The occupant of the home did not suffer serious injuries and was treated at Sebasticook Valley and released.

Gottardi said both men are in their 30s, and the intruder also lives in St. Albans.

Somerset Deputy Michael Ross is the primary investigator. Gottardi said he was assisted at the scene by Maine state Trooper Jon Brown.
