Shortly before 8:30 Friday evening, an 18-year-old man walked into the Caribou Police Station to report that he had been stabbed multiple times and needed medical attention. Caribou Fire and Ambulance administered aid and transported the victim to Cary Medical Center where he was treated and released.

Police later arrested 21-year-old Andrew Torres of Caribou and charged him with Aggravated Assault, Criminal Threatening and Violation of Conditional Release. Torres' bail was set at $50,000 cash or $50,000 double surety.
Nineteen-year-old Craig Vrieze of Presque Isle was also charged with Aggravated Assault. Vrieze's bail was set at $1,000 cash or $5,000 surety. Both Torres and Vrieze failed to make bail and were transported to the Aroostook County Jail in Houlton. The two are scheduled to appear in court on January 5.
