Bangor, ME
A Bangor man who asked another man if he wanted to join in on “getting” two gay men walking in front of him before showing the man and his girlfriend a knife he was carrying could face more than criminal threatening and trespass charges. Bangor police Officer Richard Polk arrested Ryan David Lane, 19, of Bangor and charged him with carrying a concealed weapon, criminal threatening and terrorizing for his part in a threatening incident on New Year’s Eve in downtown Bangor, according to Bangor police Sgt. Paul Edwards.
