ORNEVILLE, Maine — A social gathering Wednesday night that turned into a melee after a woman was jabbed in the leg with a pair of scissors is under investigation by the Maine State Police.

A group had gathered at a Boyd Lake camp off Route 11 at 10 p.m. when some of the attendees got into a heated argument and assaults took place, according to Trooper Adam Coover of the Maine State Police.

Arrested Wednesday and charged with assault were Donna Bubar, 41, and Wendell Bubar, 47, both of Orneville, Coover said.

When state police arrived, Coover said the parties had separated, so he and Trooper Matt Grant divided up the interviews.

Coover said several different accounts of what happened were given by those at the gathering, so details remain sketchy.

What is known, he said, is that Casey Cross, no age available, of the Orneville area was jabbed in the leg with a pair of scissors. Her brothers, Trevor and Nick Cross, no ages available, also of the Orneville area, were at the gathering, and one of them was struck over the head with a tire iron, Coover said. Both Casey Cross and her brother were taken by ambulance to Mayo Regional Hospital in Dover-Foxcroft, where they were treated and later released.

Wendell Bubar also suffered a head injury but refused treatment, according to Coover.

More charges may be filed as the investigation continues, Coover said.
