BANGOR, Maine — A Bangor woman has been arrested on a charge of felony assault in connection with a Sept. 3 stabbing in a First Street apartment.
Rubydale McGuire, 28, was arrested Monday and charged with aggravated assault, a Class B felony punishable by up to 10 years in prison and a fine of up to $20,000, according to Bangor police Sgt. Paul Edwards.
As of late Wednesday night, McGuire remained at Penobscot County Jail, a jail official confirmed.
According to Edwards, Bangor police went to a First Street apartment about 9 p.m. Sept. 3 to investigate a report of a stabbing. Upon arriving, the officers noticed blood in the hallway and found a 49-year-old male victim inside one of the apartments.
The victim was holding a cloth pillowcase on one of his arms on an injury consistent with a sharp-edged weapon, Edwards said.
The victim told police that McGuire was visiting him in his apartment and that at some point during the evening, he noticed that some of his cash was missing. The man confronted McGuire about the missing money, which led to the alleged attack.
The victim was taken to a Bangor hospital for treatment of injuries that were not considered life-threatening.
A member of the police department’s evidence response team and Bangor police Detective Joel Nadeau collected statements and evidence as part of the investigation, Edwards said.
On Monday, McGuire was located in Canaan and arrested on two warrants by a state police trooper. After meeting with the trooper in Canaan, Nadeau charged McGuire with aggravated assault and took her to the county jail.
