WINSLOW — A man wanted in connection with a stabbing in October in Winslow was arrested Tuesday night in Waterville.

Scott Alan Bickford, 35, of Winslow, was arrested after Waterville police Sgt. Dan Ames learned he was among the occupants of a vehicle parked behind Arbo’s Towing on Drummond Avenue at 7:50 p.m., said Waterville Deputy Chief Charles Rumsey.

Bickford was wanted on a warrant for aggravated assault from Kennebec County Superior Court in Augusta.

The victim of the aggravated assault told police he was walking on Monument Street on Oct. 11 when four men, one of whom was Bickford, got out of an SUV and surrounded him.

The man said he knew he was in trouble and pulled out a knife for protection, and he cut one of his attackers after he was stabbed, according to an affidavit from Winslow Detective Gina Henderson.

The man told police he woke up in the hospital the next day. He said he received 54 stitches on his back, 12 to 15 stitches on his stomach and that he has headaches and disrupted equilibrium.

A person who told police he witnessed the assault said that four men surrounded the victim and threw punches at his head and face. The witness told police one man slashed the victim both on the front and back.

Bickford was arrested on a warrant and summoned on charges of criminal conspiracy; tampering with a witness, informant, juror or victim; violating a protective order; domestic violence assault; and on a probation hold.

His bail was set at $2,500 cash, Rumsey said.
