LEWISTON, Maine (WMTW) - The Lewiston Police Department responded to a medical call this morning in which a man had been found walking down the street Friday morning at 9:20 a.m. with what officials call a ‘significant arm laceration’.

Officials say two officers found the man on Maple Street and were able to put a tourniquet on the man’s arm before medical personnel arrived.

The victim, whose name is not being released, was later transported to Central Maine Medical Center for treatment.

Officials continue to investigate exactly how the man was hurt, though police believe it happened at the A.K. Market, located at 280 Park St.

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration has been contacted to investigate.

Anyone with information is asked to call Det. Charles Weaver at 513-3001 Ext. 3321 or Lt. Derrick St. Laurent, 207-513-3001 ext. 3323.
