AUGUSTA — A Cony Road man is behind bars today after a weekend stabbing left one man recovering at a Lewiston hospital.

Malcolm Robert Moore, 37, was charged Sunday with aggravated assault after allegedly stabbing another man during a confrontation inside the apartment building the men share at 226 Cony Road.

The victim, Aaron Francis Brunelle, 32, was taken by a LifeFlight of Maine helicopter to Central Maine Medical Center with what police described as life-threatening injuries. Brunelle was listed in good condition this morning, according to a hospital spokeswoman.

Police responded to the Cony Road building around 1:15 a.m. Sunday for a report of a stabbing.

Witnesses told police Moore stabbed Brunelle after he told Moore to clean up a mess Moore had made in the kitchen, said Augusta Police Detective Tori Tracy in an affidavit filed in Kennebec County Superior Court.

Moore told police he stabbed Brunelle after he confronted Moore in the hall and yelled that Moore had been evicted from the building. Moore said Brunelle placed him in a headlock and that he stabbed Brunelle to escape.
