ST. ALBANS — Police were still trying to sort out the de-tails of a stabbing that occurred Sunday evening at 767 Todds Corner Road.

Two men were injured in the 7 p.m. incident, according to detective Lt. Carl Gottardi of the Somerset County Sheriff’s Department.

Gottardi said he could not re-lease the names of the victims or details of the incident “be-cause we’re still trying to interview people and sort things out.”

He said that a report was initially received at the Somerset County Communications Center that one man came uninvited to the home of one of the victims and an altercation en-sued.

Gottardi would not confirm which victim lived at the resi-dence. He also would not con-firm that children were in the home at the time of the stabbing.

Both men involved were in their 30s, Gottardi said.

The stabbing victim was taken to Sebasticook Valley Hospital in Pittsfield by ambu-lance and later flown to Eastern Maine Medical Center. Gottardi said he was not sure of the se-verity of the man’s wounds.

The man with head injuries was being treated at SVH, Got-tardi said, and was likely to be released. No one has been charged in the incident, but the case remained under investigation, Gottardi said.

Somerset County Deputy Michael Ross is the primary investigator, and Gottardi said he was assisted at the scene by Maine State Police troopers.
