SKOWHEGAN — Police are looking for a man they say broke into a Mount Pleasant Avenue home Wednesday and threatened to stab the homeowner while demanding money.

The owner of the home found the door open and a man standing in the living room at around 4:44 a.m. Wednesday, according to a press release from the Skowhegan Police Department. The man threatened to stab the homeowner and demanded money.

“He said, ‘I will stab you,’ and … it looked like he had something in his hand, but the victim could not say whether it was a knife,” said Skowhegan Police Chief Ted Blais.

The homeowner, whose identity was not released, told the man to leave and yelled to other people in the house, prompting the man to flee, according to the release.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Skowhegan Police Department through the Somerset County Communications Center at 474-6386.
