BANGOR, Maine — A 33-year-old Bangor man who was accused of knocking another man’s tooth out Tuesday night is facing an assault charge.

Steven Davis was issued a summons by Bangor police.

The incident that led to the charge occurred about 9 p.m., when police were called to Glenwood Drive for a disorderly conduct complaint.

When they arrived, police officers found a local man in front of his residence who reported that he had been assaulted, Sgt. Paul Edwards of the Bangor Police Department said Wednesday, citing an arrest report.

The victim, who was bleeding from the mouth and whose tooth had been knocked out, told police that he did not know his attacker but that he thought his name was Steven Davis.

After interviewing both men, police determined that the assault was prompted by an exchange of lewd gestures between the two that the report indicated were sexual in nature.
