Jason MacAmbley, Public Information Officer with the Bangor PD, says when the cops arrived on the scene, they found an individual in a wheelchair, badly bleeding from a stab wound in his arm.

"Officers were told by the victim and witnesses the male was arguing with a female on the sidewalk and a car going by pulled over, and a person from the vehicle got out and began arguing with the male victim, and blows were exchanged. The suspect then allegedly stabbed the victim, who was in a wheelchair, jumped back in the car, and the car left the scene. Witnesses stated the suspect was wearing a tan or cream-colored hooded sweatshirt with the hood pulled up. "
