According to WGME, the suspect is in custody.

Original story follows...


According to the KJ, schools were locked to the public and the town offices were closed following a Wednesday stabbing in Winslow.

The newspaper article explains that, according to Chief Leonard Macdaid, a middle aged man was stabbed at least six times on LaSalle Street.  The incident happened at about 10 AM.

Police have yet to identify the assailant and it was not clear if the victim knew his attacker.  The condition of the victim is not currently known.

Even though the man was seriously injured, he was able to walk about a block to an apartment building on Monument Street.  Police reportedly found the victim by following the trail of blood.

With the suspect still at large, local schools had instituted a lock-out to protect students and staff.  The article explained that Town Manager Erica LaCroix sent an email to explain that the offices were closed due to the incident.  People were still being allowed into the municipal building, but they needed to call ahead to get access.

It appears that, as of 3 PM on Wednesday, the suspect was still at large.  Clearly, anyone in the area should use caution.  And, if you see something or someone suspicious, to do not approach the situation or person.  Instead, call 911.
