BANGOR, Maine — Bangor police detectives are investigating a stabbing Wednesday in which two adult males were injured.

The incident, which was reported at 6:10 p.m., occurred at an apartment at 69 Curve St., Bangor police Sgt. Larry Weber said Wednesday night.

Though the investigation was still in its initial stages, Weber said that two adult males, whose names were withheld Wednesday night, “got into altercation.”

Lt. Timothy Reid, also of the Bangor Police Department, said that at least one knife and possibly a baseball bat were involved.

Both men were taken to Bangor hospitals Wednesday night, Reid said.

According to Reid, one of the men involved in the fight suffered a cut to his hand. He was taken to St. Joseph Hospital, where he was treated and then released.

The other man, who suffered “a couple of stab wounds to his back,” was taken to Eastern Maine Medical Center, where Reid said he was still undergoing treatment Wednesday night.

Reid said none of the injuries to the men appeared to be life-threatening.

No one had been charged by late Wednesday or arrested as police still were interviewing witnesses and the people involved, Reid said.
