BANGOR, Maine — Few details are available about an alleged stabbing at the Ramada Inn on Odlin Road that was reported early Saturday morning, Bangor police Lt. Steve Hunt said Sunday.

“Someone said they were assaulted with a knife at the Ramada,” the lieutenant said. “They received stitches” from an injury that is described as not life-threatening.

Police got a call from the assault victim about 2:45 a.m. on Saturday.

“The person went to the hospital and reported it from there,” Hunt said, declining to release the victim’s age, gender, where he or she is from and whether the stabbing occurred inside the motel, Barnaby’s bar or in the parking lot.

The victim should have called police when the incident occurred to ensure the suspect and all available witnesses could be interviewed, the lieutenant said.
