BANGOR — Bangor police have charged a man with assaulting a woman with a field hockey stick.

Police responded to a 911 call at about 12:45 p.m. Wednesday from a man who said he was attacked by two men and a woman who had knives and brass knuckles.

When police caught up with the man who made the call, 29-year-old Christopher Stone, he told them he had been attacked in a dispute over a cellphone. Stone was carrying a field hockey stick.

The responding officer became suspicious because Stone had no injuries consistent with being assaulted with knives or brass knuckles.

Police determined that Stone was the aggressor and had used the stick to beat a woman about the upper body and head.

He was charged with aggravated assault and other offenses.
