WALES — Maine police say a Wales man made up a story about interrupting a burglary and caused his own injuries.

State Police Lt. Walter Grzyb says Robert Goucher admitted the incident was a hoax. Groucher was treated Wednesday at a Lewiston hospital for his injuries.

He said he arrived at home on Wednesday to discover two men burglarizing his home, and said one of them struck him while the other one stabbed him.

The Sun Journal says Maine State Police investigators issued the 36-year-old a summons for making a false report.

WALES — One person was injured Wednesday when he reportedly was assaulted after interrupting a burglary inside his Centre Road home.

Maine State Police Spokesman Steve McCausland said Robert Goucher was taken to Central Maine Medical Center in Lewiston with what were believed to be minor injuries.

McCausland was unsure how Goucher was assaulted or if a weapon was involved.

There have been no charges connected to the incident, McCausland said.

“We have interviewed him initially,” he said. “We need to interview him again to follow up on other facts of the case.”

Public records indicate Goucher shares the home at 40 Centre Road in the Androscoggin County community with his wife, Jennifer Goucher.

Goucher called police shortly before noon, McCausland said. Goucher said he had interrupted a burglary at his home and was assaulted before his attackers fled.

McCausland said a team of Maine State Police troopers and detectives converged on Goucher’s home.

McCausland asked anybody who saw anything suspicious on Centre Road to call Maine State Police in Gray at 657-3030.
