Portland man arrested for gun threats, multiple guns recovered

PORTLAND — Police have arrested a man accused of threatening people with a handgun at a local restaurant early July 6.

Officers responded to a 911 call around 1:50 a.m. reporting a man brandishing a firearm at 408 Forest Avenue.

The suspect, later identified as 25-year-old Anthony Lobor, fled the scene before police arrived.

Witnesses said Lobor displayed a handgun in his waistband and threatened to shoot customers inside the restaurant before being escorted out by two associates.

A spent bullet casing was found in the parking lot, confirming reports that a gunshot was fired during the incident.

Detectives located Lobor on July 8 at 42 Kellogg Street.

Due to the presence of young children, officers decided not to make an immediate arrest.

However, Lobor was taken into custody later in the day after a foot chase around 5 p.m.

A subsequent search of Lobor’s home resulted in the seizure of various firearms, including what appeared to be a fully automatic rifle, as well as firearm components, drugs, cash and evidence suggestive of drug trafficking.

Lobor faces charges including criminal threats with a dangerous weapon, threatening to expose or possess a concealed weapon and violation of release conditions.

Authorities are asking for the public’s help with this or other cases and encourage anyone with information to contact them at (207) 874-8575 or text PPDME and their message to 847411.
