In Lewiston, Maine a police corporal was stabbed 5 times while trying to arrest a man.
This is horrible!
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.
