LEWISTON – A man who was stabbed a half-dozen times during a fight at Marcotte Park Tuesday was released from a hospital a short time later after he was treated for his wounds.

By Wednesday morning, two adults and a teenager were behind bars on charges stemming from the attack.

Police did not identify the 21-year-old local man, who they say was stabbed in the back, stomach and side. He was taken to St. Mary’s Regional Medical Center and released hours later.

Police arrested a 17-year-old Massachusetts boy on charges of elevated aggravated assault. Investigators said the teen was visiting his mother in Lewiston when he took part in a brawl involving at least a half-dozen people.

Police said it was the 17-year-old who brandished the knife and stabbed the victim multiple times. Two other men were charged for their roles in the attack after they were questioned by police detectives.

David Sally, 19, of Pelham, N.H., was charged with assault. Charles J. Sally, 18, of Lynn, Mass., was charged with assault and criminal threatening with a dangerous weapon.

Investigators said at least six people began brawling just after 3 p.m. in a gravel lot on the Birch Street side of Marcotte Park. Several people witnessed the fight, police said.

Minutes after cops arrived to break it up, nearly a dozen people swarmed into the police station to give their accounts of the brawl. Detectives questioned several of them before arresting the three suspects at about 7:30 p.m.

Detective James Theiss was continuing to investigate the stabbing Wednesday as well as the circumstances that led to the fight.
