BANGOR, Maine — The Bangor Police Department is investigating an assault late Friday afternoon that sent a man to the hospital, Bangor police Sgt. Ed Potter confirmed Friday evening.

The assault, initially reported as a possible stabbing, occurred shortly before 4 p.m. at an apartment building on Essex Street, near the intersection of Garland Street.

Potter said that a man, whose name is being withheld, was taken from that location to a Bangor hospital for treatment of facial injuries that were not considered life-threatening.

No other details were released Friday night. However, the assault remains under investigation by the police department’s Criminal Investigation Division.

Earlier Friday evening, Bangor police Sgt. Catherine Rumsey said it was not clear if the stabbing was related to a group fight involving about a dozen people on Center Street that took place at around 2:15 p.m.
