Police: Alleged aggressor wounded in domestic violence incident

Times Record Staff


Sagadahoc County Sheriff ’s Deputies continue to investigate a domestic violence incident in Woolwich that left a 22-year-old man with knife wounds to his hand Friday night.

Chief Deputy Brett Strout said the sheriff ’s office was called to a Chopps Cross Road home Friday at around 7 p.m. following a 911 call for a domestic violence incident.

Police say Michael Marcotte, 22, allegedly attacked the 44- year- old man he’d been living with as a domestic partner for three weeks. Strout said the victim grabbed a knife to protect himself. Marcotte took hold of the knife blade, which cut his hand as the victim pulled the knife away.

Cpl. Ian Alexander and Deputy Al Huntington arrived and found both men were still at the residence.

Strout Marcotte was arrested and charged with aggravated reckless conduct, a Class B crime. Marcotte was taken to Maine Medical Center in Portland for injuries to his fingers.

“Things didn’t work out very well for him at Maine Med,” Strout said of Marcotte, who reportedly didn’t behave well.

Marcotte was brought instead to Mid Coast Hospital in Brunswick so his wounds could be treated before he was transported to Two Bridges Regional Jail. Strout said Monday that Marcotte remained at the jail awaiting surgery.

With a last known address of Hampton, Virginia, Strout said Marcotte moved to Maine on Jan. 2.

The incident remains under investigation.
