Arrests made in waterfront assault

BANGOR – Arrests have been made following an incident that took place on the Bangor waterfront last week.

At approximately 8 p.m. on the evening of July 31, officers responded to the area of Front and Railroad Street for an assault complaint. A local man – a transient – reported having just been attacked by two male suspects as he was making repairs to a bicycle.

As a result of this complaint, 18-year-old Liam Geagan of Brewer was arrested and charged with Assault class-D. Also charged was 19-year-old Benjamin Gilliland of Bangor.

During the investigation, Bangor PD became aware of videos which had been posted on Facebook.

That juvenile male has since been charged with assault.

The investigation into this matter remains ongoing as of press time. Additional charges are likely.
