BANGOR, Maine — A local man was arrested early Monday morning after he got into an altercation with two brothers, ages 32 and 29, at their Ohio Street apartment that ended with the younger one being stabbed in the arm.

Arthur Lee Greene, 28, was charged with aggravated assault in connection with the stabbing. He also was charged with criminal threatening with a dangerous weapon for allegedly holding a knife to the elder brother’s throat.

Greene remained in jail Monday night unable to post $5,000 cash bail.

He is expected to make his first appearance Tuesday before a judge.

Police were sent to the brother’s apartment at 1:16 a.m. for a report of an assault, according to Bangor police Sgt. Chip Hodges.

The brothers, whose names were not released, told police that Greene knocked on their door but they refused to let him in. The two agreed to step outside and at some point Greene pulled a knife, Hodges said Monday afternoon, referring to a report. When the younger brother intervened, Greene reportedly slashed his left arm with the weapon.

The wound was not considered to be life-threatening, according to police.

Greene was arrested at his Sanford Street residence after fleeing from the scene, Hodges said.
