SKOWHEGAN — Residents of the Milburn Street area on Skowhegan’s south side said state police, detectives and a mobile crime truck were in the neighborhood for most of Monday afternoon.

“The cops were inside and outside and everywhere,” resident Jessica Raymond said next to a small bonfire that family and friends were sitting around Monday night, after the scene had been cleared. “I saw the crime units and state troopers and just the cops all out there … and just rumors. It was in the apartment building two houses over.”

Family members at the bonfire said the activity was concentrated in an apartment at 33 Milburn Street.

The apartment was the scene of a stabbing in April.

David Greene, 34, of 33 Milburn St., suffered three or four stab wounds at the base of his head in a disagreement with people attending a gathering, Police Chief Ted Blais said in April.

“It was a very bloody scene,” Blais said at the time. “It could have been life-threatening.”

Blais could not be reached for comment Monday night.

Department of Public Safety spokesman Steve McCausland, who handles state police information releases, did not respond to a request for information Monday night.
