BANGOR – Two men are facing felony charges after allegedly choking a man into unconsciousness and robbing him.
On May 13, at about 1:15 a.m., Officer Taylor Bagley responded to the area of Hammond and Webster Streets where a man had reportedly been robbed. Bagley met the victim, who told him that he was at a local bar in downtown Bangor when he met an acquaintance he only knew as “Scott.” When the bar closed, Scott offered to give the victim a ride home. The victim got into a silver van with Scott and noticed another younger man and three women were also inside. The victim stated that the younger man choked him out from behind, that he went unconscious and woke up in the parking lot of Angelo’s Pizzeria on Hammond Street as the van took off out Hammond Street. The victim quickly flagged down a passing motorist and used her phone to call police. He reported missing an undisclosed amount of cash and his cell phone.
After minutes after receiving a description of the suspect vehicle and occupants, Officer Dick Polk located them at the On The Run Mobil gas station at the corner of Union and Griffin roads. Detectives James Carr and Erik Tall brought all occupants to the police station and each were interviewed. As a result of those interviews, Adam Freeman, 25, of Bangor, and Scott Macomber, 44, of Lagrange were arrested and charged each with one count of Class B Felony Robbery. They both remain at the Penobscot County Jail.
