Man Found on Road Bleeding and Screaming

GOULDSBORO — Police received three calls Oct. 19 about a man walking on East Schoodic Drive who was bleeding and screaming, police said.

Police said the young man was eventually found at his home in the village of Wonsqueak Harbor, nude, pacing, screaming and bleeding from his right wrist.

“Every once in a while the phone would ring and he would answer the phone and scream, ‘Stop calling me,’” police said.

Police said they believe the man, who appeared intoxicated and agitated, may have been on bath salts but could not say for sure what substance, if any, may have been involved.

A state trooper and another Gouldsboro police officer were called in to assist and the man was transported to Maine Coast Memorial Hospital, police said.

A park ranger assisted in the search with his police dog.

Domestic Summons

Jennifer Allen, 26, of Surry, was summoned Oct. 20 on a charge of criminal mischief after pouring beer and syrup around her estranged husband’s apartment, police said.

Police said Allen’s husband told them that Jennifer began throwing things around after he received a phone call from a woman he is now dating, police said.

Her husband said he didn’t want Jennifer arrested but wanted her to pay for the damage and return a case of beer and a laptop computer she took with her, police said.

Allen apologized and said she would clean things up, police said.


Kenny Eaton, 57, of the village of Prospect Harbor, was summoned Oct. 18 on a charge of operating after suspension, police said.

Police said they spotted Eaton riding a motorcycle on Route 1 and followed him into the parking lot at Young’s Market.

Crank Calls

An 80-year-old Birch Harbor woman told police Oct. 20 that she had been getting crank calls, but didn’t know the phone number or who the caller might be, police said.

Police said they told the woman there wasn’t much they could do to trace the caller, but suggested she blow a whistle in the phone if the calls continued.

Overseas Fraud

An 84-year-old Corea man called police Oct. 18 to complain that he and his aunt were being taken advantage of by an overseas company, which was withdrawing money from their bank account, police said.
