BANGOR, Maine — A Brooklyn, N.Y., man is facing multiple charges after Bangor police arrested him Thursday night in connection with an assault earlier this month.

The sequence of events leading to the arrest of Isaiah “Izzy” Orane, 18, started on June 2 when police investigated an aggravated assault and criminal mischief complaint on Cumberland Street, according to Sgt. Tim Cotton.

The male victim in this case told police that a man had shattered his windows with a baseball bat and that he also had been assaulted in the knees with the weapon, Cotton said.

At that point, all police knew was that the suspect was a male who goes by the nickname Izzy and an investigation was launched, Cotton said.

On Thursday, Orane was found during a traffic stop on Ohio Street and he was immediately arrested and charged with aggravated assault, a Class B felony, and aggravated criminal mischief, a Class C felony.

Once at Penobscot County Jail, jail officials found what Cotton described as a large quantity of crack cocaine and heroin hidden on Orane, adding a charge of unlawful trafficking in schedule W drugs, the sergeant said.

Orane was also charged with assault and criminal threatening stemming from a June 22 incident on Third Street in which Orane allegedly threatened to kill a man and threw a milkshake at the victim’s girlfriend, according to Cotton.

Orane was released from jail on $20,000 bail. Cotton was unsure when Orane’s first court appearance will take place.

If convicted, Orane faces up to 10 years in prison on the aggravated assault charge and five years on the aggravated criminal mischief charge.
