BANGOR, Maine — A woman was arrested and charged with domestic assault after stabbing her husband during an argument between the Brewer couple at a friend’s apartment late Saturday afternoon.

Bangor police officers responded to a report of an assault at 175 Hammond St. at 4:40 p.m. Saturday.

Bangor police Sgt. Paul Edwards confirmed that officers found a 49-year-old male victim bleeding from a stab wound that left a 3-inch gash in his left shoulder. The man was transported by ambulance to Eastern Maine Medical Center at approximately 5:20 p.m. with what appeared to be an injury that was not life-threatening.

Meanwhile, the man’s wife — Jacqueline Williams, 45, of Brewer — was no longer at the premises and officers began a search for her. She was located walking down Hammond Street within a few minutes after officers arrived on the scene.

Witnesses who were present in the apartment — and the victim — told police that an argument broke out between Williams and her husband, and at some point Williams became angry, ran to the kitchen, grabbed a large knife and swung it at the victim, cutting him once on the shoulder.

Williams was later arrested for Class B felony elevated aggravated assault and misdemeanor domestic assault. She remains at Penobscot County Jail on a $5,060 cash bail.

Williams’ husband’s was treated and released Saturday, according to EMMC and Edwards.
