BRUNSWICK, Maine — An 18-year-old Woolwich man was charged with aggravated assault early Monday after police say he stabbed another man in Bay Bridge Estates, sending the victim to Maine Medical Center with serious injuries.
Police took Chuck Schooley, 18, to Cumberland County Jail on Monday morning after the incident, which took place just after 1 a.m. on Primose Lane in the Bay Bridge Estates mobile home park, according to Deputy Chief Marc Hagan of the Brunswick Police Department.
Police went to Primrose Lane at 1:07 a.m. after receiving reports that a male who had reportedly been stabbed was lying in the middle of the road, Hagan said. When officers arrived, a large group of people who had congregated in the area ran from the scene.
Brunswick rescue personnel rushed the alleged stabbing victim to Maine Medical Center in Portland, where he underwent surgery, Hagan said.
Officers called for a tracking dog and officer from the Bath Police Department, and Schooley was tracked to Tufton Street, also in Bay Bridge Estates.
Witnesses reported that Schooley and another man exchanged words during a party at 25 Primrose Lane and then fought outside the home.
Police have not recovered the weapon, Hagan said.
The victim, who was conscious when emergency personnel arrived, allegedly identified Schooley as the man who stabbed him.
