Police search for witnesses in child's assault

BANGOR Police are searching for anyone who may have witnessed a man assaulting a small child in the parking lot of St. Joseph Hospital on Jan. 18.

On Jan. 19, at 4 p.m., 30-year-old Scott Peavey of Carmel was arrested after a joint investigation by the Bangor Police Department and the Penobscot County Sheriff's Office.

Peavey was charged with felony assault on a child under the age of 6 after the investigation revealed he had injured a toddler in his care. A report was made to a security officer at St. Joseph Hospital on Jan. 18 that the man was striking a small child in a vehicle outside of the hospital. That witness did not leave his name.

The child was subsequently treated and released from Eastern Maine Medical Center.

Anyone who witnessed the incident at St. Joseph Hospital, including the person who reported the incident to security on Jan. 18, is urged to contact either Det. Brent Beaulieu of the Bangor Police Department at (207) 947-7382 X 5742 or Det. Rick Canarr of the Penobscot County Sheriff's Office at (207) 945-4636.

No charges in Elm Street stabbing 

BANGOR Police said no charges will be filed in the stabbing death of a Bangor man that occurred in late December.

On Dec. 29, 2012, at about 2:30 a.m., the police and medical personnel responded to the report of a stabbing at 80 Elm Street. Jeffrey Leblanc, 34, was found bleeding in the driveway outside the residence and was transported to Eastern Maine Medical Center's emergency room. He died later that day.

The Medical Examiner's Office reported the death as a homicide, and the Maine State Attorney General's Office then took over the investigation. After thoroughly reviewing the case, prosecutors declined to file charges, citing legitimate issues of self-defense and defense of premises, and the case is considered closed.

Reports indicate that Leblanc was inside the Elm Street residence that night when he became aggressive toward an unidentified resident. Leblanc assaulted that person, causing multiple injuries to his face. The resident tried to fend him off, but when Leblanc continued his assault the resident stabbed Leblanc once in the side of his abdomen. Leblanc was transported to the emergency room at Eastern Maine Medical Center and died later that day.

In an unrelated incident on Dec. 28, 2012, a caller reported a man whose face was covered in blood walking on Forest Avenue and trying to enter homes and moving vehicles. The man was identified as Leblanc, and he was located and given a ride to the emergency room by a Bangor officer. Leblanc stated he was beat up and refused to cooperate with police. Leblanc later walked out of the hospital at about 1 a.m. on Dec. 29, 2012, after refusing treatment.

As fast as fast can be, you'll never catch damn it

ORLAND A Bucksport man reportedly led a state trooper on a high speed chase that ended in his arrest.

On Jan. 12, Tpr. Greg Roy attempted to stop a vehicle on Route 1 in Orland for criminal speeding. The driver refused to stop and fled at a high rate of speed. Roy pursued and after a short chase that reached speeds of over 100 miles per hour, the driver, later identified as Everett Door, 37, of Bucksport, pulled into a driveway.

Door was subsequently arrested for eluding an officer, criminal speed and operating under the influence, and taken to the Hancock County Jail.

Police investigate daytime burglaries

GLENBURN Maine State Police and the Penobscot County Sheriff's Office are investigating numerous daytime residential burglaries that have occurred in the greater Glenburn area throughout the past week.

Troopers and deputies received information this weekend that has led them to be on the lookout for a 23-year-old man from Orrington. Tpr. Darren Vittum spotted the suspect's vehicle driving on Pushaw Road in Glenburn early yesterday afternoon. Vittum subsequently arrested Nicholas Osgood, of Orrington. Authorities and members of the Maine Drug Enforcement also went to Brasslett Drive in Glenburn, where they served a search warrant in hopes of recovering some of the stolen property. Osgood had been staying at this residence.

Troopers also secured two vehicles they believe were used to commit the burglaries. Those vehicles will be searched over the next couple of days, according to police.
