Two peo­ple were in­jured af­ter be­ing at­tacked by “mul­ti­ple” as­sailants Thurs­day night in what Ban­gor po­lice called a home in­va­sion and as­sault.

The 10 p.m. in­ci­dent oc­curred in the 200 block of South Main Street in the bor­ough. Two peo­ple were treated for in­juries at an area hos­pi­tal, said po­lice Of­fi­cer Kevin Jones, call­ing it an iso­lated in­ci­dent. He did not iden­tify the vic­tims, other than to say they were both adults.

No one had been charged or ar­rested as of Fri­day night, Jones said.

Khalid Mzioud, a neigh­bor, said he looked out­side and saw po­lice use a stun gun on a man.

“The guy fell to the ground, but then got back up and ran,” Mzioud said. “He ran right be­tween my house and the next-door neigh­bor’s, jumped over the wooden fence and broke a piece of it off. Then he took off through the back yard. It was like watch­ing a movie.”

Mzioud said it was too dark to get a good de­scrip­tion.

Peo­ple sit­ting on the in­vaded home’s porch de­clined to iden­tify them­selves or com­ment Fri­day af­ter­noon as po­lice combed a nearby creek un­der the South Main Street bridge.

“We found ev­i­dence in the creek, but we don’t know how help­ful it will be to us,” Jones said, re­fer­ring to an item neigh­bors said was a coat.

Lo­cated near down­town, South Main Street is a com­mu­nity of mul­ti­fam­ily homes sep­a­rated by nar­row al­leys. Many of the neigh­bors are re­tirees and fire­fight­ers and quite a few fam­i­lies have chil­dren, said Dawn Mzioud, Khalid Mzioud’s wife.
