A Maine man is being held on a $1 million cash bail after he allegedly stabbed a Lewiston police corporal five times at an apartment on Monday.
Lewiston police identified the man as 27-year-old Jonathan Order. Police said they were called to an apartment at about 2:30 a.m. Monday to help apprehend Order, who was wanted by the Sabattus Police Department on a warrant out for his arrest on a domestic violence and aggravated assault charge.
Law enforcement arrived at Order’s apartment and were immediately met with threatening comments from the man.
According to police, “During that time period, Order opened the door and attacked Corporal (Michael) Dumond with a knife. Order stabbed Corporal Dumond five times to his upper torso and hand, before retreating back into the apartment and securing the door.”
Authorities reportedly negotiated with Order, and after 30 minutes he finally surrendered to officers. Order was then transferred to the Androscoggin County Jail where officers found drugs on him. While there he also allegedly assaulted two corrections officers.
The officer who was stabbed was immediately transported to Central Maine Medical Center. There he was treated for his non-life threatening wounds, and was later released.
