GOULDSBORO, Me. Officers from five law enforcement agencies surrounded an area between Route 186 and Route 1 in Gouldsboro Friday evening after a 16-year-old boy ran into the woods with a steak knife.

The boy had been arguing with his mother when she said she was going to call the police, said Officer James Malloy of the Gouldsboro Police Department. The teen then told her he would use the knife on any officer who showed up.

When Gouldsboro police arrived about 5:30 p.m., the boy bolted from a parked car and ran to hide in the woods, Malloy said. Officers from Gouldsboro, Winter Harbor, Ellsworth, the Maine State Police and the Hancock County Sheriff's Department searched for him. Ellsworth's K-9 found him within five minutes of its arrival around 6:30 p.m., he said.

The boy did not harm police when he was found, Malloy said. He was taken to Eastern Maine Medical Center in Bangor for evaluation and was released to his father, he said.
