Bangor Stabbing 

A Bangor man with a history of criminal activity is in jail, charged with stabbing his girlfriend.

Police were called to an apartment at 8 Hudson Street in Bangor Saturday night.

They found a 22-year old woman suffering from stab wounds to her abdomen.

Police say the woman identified her attacker as her ex-boyfriend, 33-year old David Archer.

The woman was rushed to Eastern Maine Medical Center, where she underwent emergency surgery…she’s now in stable condition.

Her name has not been released.

Authorities arrested Archer at Acadia Hospital Sunday morning.

He has had several previous run-ins with the law. He was arrested after a standoff with police in September of 2000.

They had gone to arrest him on federal charges of passing bad checks.

Archer is expected to make his first court appearance on Monday.
