MOSCOW, Maine — A 32-year-old man is listed in stable condition after being stabbed in the back by his brother early Saturday morning, police say.

Nathan Corcoran, 27, of Moscow was arrested for allegedly stabbing his older brother with a kitchen knife, according to Detective Lt. Carl Gottardi II of the Somerset County Sheriff’s Office.

Police received a report of an assault at a residence on Pierce Hill Road at 1:57 a.m.

“Once at the scene, it was determined that an altercation had occurred between two brothers at the residence, resulting in one brother being stabbed by the other brother,” Gottardi said in a statement on Saturday morning.

Gottardi said the injured brother, whom he did not name in the release, “had a serious stab wound in his back area, as well as some superficial cuts on his head.”

The victim was transported to Redington-Fairview General Hospital in Skowhegan, where he was listed in stable condition early Saturday morning.

Nathan Corcoran was charged with Class B aggravated assault and remains in Somerset County Jail on Saturday. Gottardi said the recovered knife allegedly used in the crime was a large kitchen-type knife.

“The investigation into this incident is ongoing and further charges may be forthcoming once the matter is reviewed by the district attorney’s office,” said Gottardi.
