What Happened?

Detective Brent Beaulieu says officers were called to a Bangor residence at approximately 9:45 Tuesday night for a report of a man with multiple facial injuries that was holding a firearm. When the officers arrived, they found the man who immediately gave the weapon to them. The man advised them that he had been at a Court Street home with his girlfriend when two people arrived and physically assaulted him. The man said he was also cut with an edged weapon. After the initial assault, the man and his girlfriend were held at gunpoint and locked in a bathroom. Eventually, the male victim was able to get control of the gun and escaped by jumping out a window.

Police went to the Court Street address given by the victim and, during the course of the investigation, were able to find the female victim. Both people were transported to a local hospital for treatment of minor injuries they received during the attack.

Who Was Arrested?

Detectives from the Bangor Police Criminal Investigation Division responded and, in the course of their inquiry, arrested two suspects. David Bennett, 41, of Bangor and Kaniah Sockabasin, 28, of Pleasant Point are both charged with robbery and kidnapping. They were both taken to the Penobscot County Jail, where they're currently being held.

This investigation is ongoing.
