Orono man faces felony sexual assault charges

ORONO - On Oct. 14, around 10:40 a.m., a woman called police to report that she had been sexually assaulted by a man who lived in her trailer park.

Police said the victim had been asleep when Aaron Olivares, 35, of Orono, entered her bedroom and got into bed with her.

Olivares was arrested and charged with unlawful sexual contact and aggravated criminal trespass, both class C felonies. He was taken to Penobscot County Jail.

Monkey business 


ORONO - Police are investigating the abduction of Nanners, a plush ape that stood vigil over the bananas at the Circle K on Main Street.

Orono Police are hoping to identify the man captured Oct. 16 on a surveillance video leaving with the purple primate. The stuffed animal was the personal property of one of the employees and had been watching over the fruits for several years. The employee was quite annoyed that Nanners had been removed.

Anyone with information should call the Orono Police Department at 866-4000. As of press time, no ransom demands have been made.

Bangor police investigate multiple stabbings

BANGOR - Authorities are investigating stabbings that occurred early last Wednesday.

On Oct. 12, around 5:15 a.m., Bangor police responded to Eastern Maine Medical Center's Emergency Room to investigate the report of a stabbing that may have occurred within the City. The victim was reportedly dropped off at the ER and was being treated.

At around 8 a.m., Bangor police received a call from the Newport Police Department indicating that a victim was being transported to a local emergency room in that area and that he had also been stabbed in Bangor before being dropped off in Newport. The second victim was subsequently taken by ambulance to EMMC.

Members of the department's Criminal Investigations Division are investigating both incidents.

Lewiston man charged with murder

LEWISTON - On Oct. 13, state and local authorities arrested a Lewiston man and charged him with murder in connection with the death of a Lewiston woman missing since July.

Buddy Robinson, 30, was arrested at about 11:30 p.m. at the home of his girlfriend on Gloucester Road in New Gloucester. He was taken to the Androscoggin County Jail.

Robinson is charged with the death of a 22-year-old Lewiston woman, who disappeared July 1. Her body has not been recovered. At one point, both were residents of a two-unit apartment house on Highland Avenue in Lewiston, where police say the victim was killed and her body taken elsewhere.

Police searched the apartment house in September, and evidence from the building was analyzed at the Maine State Police crime lab, which led investigators to conclude the victim was killed inside the building.

Working with the Attorney General's Office, State and Lewiston Police arrested Robinson during the night. Robinson has been employed at a call center in Lewiston.

Rules of the road still apply, license or no

OLD TOWN - A Lagrange man got a ride after police learned that he reportedly shouldn't be driving.

On Oct. 17, Officer Christine McAvoy stopped a vehicle being driven by Peirce Glenn, of Lagrange, after he almost struck her cruiser while straddling the centerline, according to police.

Glenn reportedly admitted to the officer that his license was suspended, but that he drives despite that technicality.

McAvoy learned from dispatch that there was a discrepancy with the dates on the registration. The vehicle was also registered to a third party, and Glenn told the officer he had other people register the vehicle for him since his license was suspended.

McAvoy also discovered that Glenn had multiple arrest warrants stemming from a prior operating after suspension conviction, attaching false plates and burning prohibited materials.

He was arrested and taken to Penobscot County Jail.

Sgt. Mike Hashey stayed with the vehicle and noticed that the VIN number on the inspection sticker did not match the vehicle. The sticker and the vehicle's plates were subsequently seized and the car was towed.

Glenn was charged with operating after suspension, displaying fictitious certificate of inspection, failure to obey lane controls, altering registration plates and failure to provide proof of insurance.

Barnard was assisted by Sgt. Tim Varney, and Tprs. Greg Mitchell, Chris Smith and Reid Bond.
