The Daily News, Bangor, ME, 3/1/97

Sunday, June 1, 1997

Defense Secretary William Cohen's brother, Robert, opened the door to his Bangor, Maine, home and found himself facing the same man he had filed a police report on for harassing him in a bar two weeks earlier. The man charged through the door and slashed Robert Cohen, who fought back with a single shot from a .22 pistol. Cohen attempted to back up the stairs, but again his six-foot, seven-inch attacker came after him, cutting the homeowner on the face. Cohen fired a second shot that sent the intruder tumbling down the stairs. Police arrested the wounded man at the scene. Two accomplices were also later apprehended.
