A Midcoast man was charged with robbery, assault and violation of condition of release after allegedly assaulting and attempting to rob a 29-year-old man early Monday morning.

Chase Breen, 21, of Warren and his brother, Cory Breen, 21, of Jefferson, met the victim at a local bar where, according to Belfast Police Detective Bryan Cunningham, the three men spent some time drinking.

Cunningham said the victim was paying for some of the drinks, and the Breens realized he had some cash on him. The three left the bar and went to the victim’s home. After some time, they left the house and began walking down Miller Street, where Cunningham said Chase Breen assaulted the victim and demanded money from him. The victim refused to give up his cash and was able to escape to his home. A neighbor called 911 around 1 a.m.

The victim was taken to Waldo County General Hospital, where he was treated for facial lacerations and bruises, according to Cunningham. He was released the same day.

Sergeants John Gibbs and Walter Corey and Officer Dan Fitzpatrick responded to the call. According to Cunningham, the victim was able to identify the men, who were later found at their grandmother’s house on Miller Street.

Chase Breen was charged with robbery, assault and violation of condition of release while Cory Breen was charged with violation of condition of release. They were both arraigned later April 12, according to Cunningham.

Police are continuing their investigation, and additional charges are possible. Both Chase and Cory Breen were out on bail on previous charges at the time they were arrested.
