Two men have been arrested after they allegedly stabbed a Hollis resident with a box cutter during a drunken fight.

John Siciliani, 27, of Bridgton and Todd Thomas, 44, of Standish were arrested by State Police after they allegedly showed up intoxicated at a house on Chadbourne Ridge Road Thursday night and confronted the residents inside, according to police.

Siciliani and Thomas began fighting with people inside the home at 64 Chadbourne Ridge Road and in the process one resident was stabbed in the leg, police said. Police later recovered a box cutter believed to be used in the stabbing.

The homeowner, whose name has not been released by police, is being treated at Maine Medical Center in Portland for a deep stab wound to the leg.

Thomas was taken into custody after being treated at Goodall Hospital in Sanford for injuries sustained in the fight.

Siciliani was arrested at gunpoint at a Hollis convenience store.

Siciliani is charged with aggravated assault, criminal threatening and criminal mischief. Thomas is charged with assault and violating bail conditions from an earlier drunk driving arrest. Both are being held at York County Jail. Police said both men have long criminal records.
