FREEPORT, Maine — A 27-year-old Brunswick man faces a felony charge of aggravated assault after police say he pushed his friend down a flight of granite stairs Tuesday at Freeport Village Station.

Nicholas Miller allegedly pushed his friend down the steps outside the man’s workplace, Freeport Police Lt. Susan Nourse said Thursday.

The victim, a 25-year-old Brunswick man, “sustained injuries consistent with falling down 17 steps of granite,” including a concussion, cuts, torn ligaments and a sprained ankle, she said.

An ambulance was not called to the scene, according to Nourse, but the man later went to a local hospital with his father.

Following the incident, Miller left the scene, but Brunswick police located him and held him at the Brunswick police station until Freeport police arrived.

He was taken to Cumberland County Jail, where he remained Thursday on $1,000 cash bail pending an agreement with Maine Pretrial Services.
