BRUNSWICK, Maine — Police charged a 32-year-old Brunswick woman with Class A elevated aggravated assault Sunday morning after she allegedly stabbed her boyfriend in the chest at their home on Madeline Drive.

Police expected Nicole Hubert, 32, to be arraigned on the Class A felony Monday afternoon.

Police allege that at approximately 2 a.m. Sunday, Hubert stabbed her 37-year-old boyfriend once in the chest, Brunswick police Lt. Mark Waltz said Monday. Hubert and a male witness, also of Brunswick, then began to drive the victim to Central Maine Medical Center in Lewiston. However, while en route to the hospital via Soper Road in Durham, Hubert reportedly jumped out of the moving vehicle.

The witness called the Durham rescue squad, and an ambulance took the three to Central Maine Medical Center, Brunswick police Cmdr. Marc Hagan said Monday.

Maine State Police went to the hospital. After troopers determined that the alleged stabbing occurred in Brunswick, the investigation was transferred to Brunswick police.

Hubert was treated for minor injuries and then released, Hagan said. Brunswick police arrested her Sunday morning on Cushing Street and took her to Cumberland County Jail. She was released Sunday afternoon on $700 cash bail.

The victim was treated for what police characterized as “serious” injuries. He was discharged from the hospital on Sunday morning.

However, while the victim was at the Brunswick police station later on Sunday giving a statement, he collapsed, according to Hagan. A Brunswick rescue crew then took him again to Central Maine Medical Center. His condition was not available Monday afternoon.

Police believe they have recovered the weapon used in the stabbing but declined to disclose further details about the incident.
