The news station reports that residents inside their homes on Common Street in Saco began hearing screams for help and pounding on doors early Tuesday morning.
Police arrives to find the victim with stab wounds to his lower abdomen. The victim told police that while he was walking home from work, a man brandishing a weapon in the shadows approached him and began demanding money.

The victim was transported from the scene to Maine Medical Center with what WGME is reporting as non-life-threatening injuries.
