LEWISTON, Maine — A local 25-year-old man who allegedly stabbed another man in September was indicted on assault charges Wednesday.
Mahad Hassan of Lewiston was indicted by an Androscoggin County grand jury on charges of aggravated assault and elevated aggravated assault.
Hassan is accused of using a broken bottle to stab 33-year-old Abdi Bihi in the face, neck, arms and back on the evening of Sept. 3 inside Hassan’s 214 Blake St. apartment.
Bihi survived his injuries. At a later court appearance, Hassan claimed he was forced to stab Bihi when the man came at him in a threatening manner.
Hassan has remained jailed since his arrest.
