A Waterville man accused of stabbing another man in what a prosecutor describes as an alleged a drug rip-off has been indicted on charges of elevated aggravated assault, robbery and violating a condition of release.

Kevin M. Coutu, 25, is accused of stabbing a man with a knife Jan. 24 in Waterville.

Coutu arranged a meeting to buy drugs from the other man and produced a knife, stabbing the man once in the neck and twice in the stomach, according to Assistant District Attorney Tyler LeClair.

The victim was in a vehicle and drove away from the scene, reportedly running over Coutu’s legs, on his way the hospital.

An affidavit from Waterville police Detective David Caron says Coutu told police he was buying marijuana from the victim near Silver Place and when Coutu handed over his $15 for the marijuana, the vehicle started to drive off.

Caron said he found a folding knife with its blade extended on the floor of the vehicle the victim had been driving.

Coutu was indicted on a robbery charge in the same incident for allegedly committing or attempting to commit theft from a woman who was in the victim’s vehicle.

An indictment is not a determination of guilt, but it indicates that there is enough evidence to proceed with formal charges and a trial.

Coutu’s was one of many indictments handed up Thursday last week by a grand jury in Kennebec County.
