Portland police have charged a 24-year-old Portland man with elevated aggravated assault after he allegedly stabbed another man in the neck on Danforth Street early Thursday morning. 

Police arrested Michael F. Brown, of North Street, on Thursday and charged him with attacking Patrick Delong, 33, of Portland at 2 a.m. near 200 Danforth St.
Delong was with a group of people, which included Brown's ex-girlfriend, police said. Brown had followed the group, which went into Ruski's, a neighborhood bar, and Delong stayed outside to talk to Brown.
The attack followed that interaction, police said.
Delong remains in stable condition at Maine Medical Center.
Brown is being held without bail at the Cumberland County Jail.
