LEWISTON, Maine — A Lewiston police corporal was stabbed five times while trying to arrest a man early Monday morning.
Lewiston police responded to 113 College St. around 2:30 a.m. to arrest 27-year-old Jonathan Order on a domestic violence aggravated assault charge stemming from an incident which occurred in Sabattus.
Police found Order in his second-floor apartment, but Order refused to open the door. Police say while still in his apartment, Order made threatening comments toward the officers.
Officers negotiated with Order for more than 30 minutes. During that time period, Order opened the door and attacked Cpl. Michael Dumond with a knife.
Order stabbed Dumond five times in his upper torso and hand before retreating back into the apartment and securing the door, according to police.
Police say Dumond was immediately transported to Central Maine Medical Center, where he was treated for his wounds and later released. His wounds were not considered life-threatening.
Order surrendered to police a short time later. He was transported to the Androscoggin County Jail.
When he arrived at the Androscoggin County Jail, officers found drugs hidden on Order’s person. He also allegedly assaulted two Androscoggin County corrections officers.
Order was charged with aggravated attempted murder, two counts of assault on an officer, violation of conditions of release, two counts of assault on corrections officers, trafficking in prison contraband and aggravated assault domestic violence.
Order is at the Androscoggin County Jail pending arrangement. Additional charges may be pending.
