Milford teen accused of threatening family member with pocket knife, police say

By Ryan McLaughlin, BDN Staff

MILFORD, Maine — An argument between two family members Wednesday night led to a Milford teenager going to jail after he made threats with a knife, police said.

Richard Paquin, 19, got into a verbal altercation with a male family member at their Milford home just after 6 p.m., according to Chief Deputy Troy Morton of the Penobscot County Sheriff’s Office.

The argument started in the driveway of the home and wound up at the Bradley fire station’s parking lot just down the road, according to Morton. Issues regarding another family member prompted the argument, Morton said.

At one point, Paquin brandished a pocket knife and made threats to kill the other man when he was told not to return to the home, according to Morton.

Paquin was booked on a charge of domestic violence criminal threatening and brought to the Penobscot County Jail, Morton said.

Paquin remained at the jail Thursday afternoon, according to Morton. He is due in court Dec. 20.
