Cummings Arrested 

A Northport man has been arrested in connection with a stabbing in Searsport.

20-year old Stephen Cummings was taken into custody in Belfast early Saturday morning.

Police say tips from the public led them to a camper located behind a home on the Patterson Hill Road…that’s where they found Cummings.

He’s charged with stabbing 25-year old Jason Batista in a Searsport apartment early Friday morning.

Batista is now hospitalized…he’s recovering from stab wounds to his back.

Cummings will make his first court appearance Tuesday or Wednesday: until then, he’s being held at the Waldo County Jail.
