Stabbing suspect turns self in as ambulance crew treats victim

LEWISTON – An ambulance crew was tending to a patient with multiple stab wounds early Monday when the suspect in the assault emerged from nearby woods and turned himself in, according to police.

Shortly after 3 a.m., the Lewiston Police Department received a call about a stabbing at an address on Indian Hill Road, police said.

Patrol officers found Evan Stafford, 27, lying in the driveway. Stafford had "numerous lacerations to his torso," police said.

An ambulance crew began tending to Stafford's injuries when Raymond Printup, 27, emerged from the woods nearby. Police said Printup surrendered to the officers and was taken into custody without incident.

Stafford was taken by Upper Mountain Fire Company ambulance to St. Mary's Hospital and then transferred to Erie County Medical Center, where police said he was in critical condition.

Printup was arraigned at Lewiston Court on a first-degree assault charge. Bail was set at $50,000 cash and $100,000 bond.
