BRUNSWICK — A Woolwich man was arrested and charged with elevated aggravated assault Monday in connection with an alleged stabbing on Primrose Lane.

Chuck D. Schooley, 18, of Sanders Road, Woolwich, was in Cumberland County Jail in Portland on Tuesday. Bail was set at $10,000 cash.

Police said they responded to the report of a stabbing just after 1 a.m. on Monday morning. They found the victim lying in the road, bleeding from the abdomen.

According to Deputy Police Chief Marc Hagan, several witnesses fled when they saw police approaching, but the victim identified Schooley.

Brunswick police requested backup from the Bath Police Department, which brought a police dog to the scene. With the dog’s help, they tracked down Schooley, who was hiding in a closet in a nearby mobile home.

Police declined to identify the victim, who was transported to Maine Medical Center in Portland. They said witnesses told them Schooley and the victim were fighting when Schooley allegedly stabbed the victim once in the abdomen.
