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

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

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

Witnesses said Lobor had shown a handgun in his waistband and threatened to shoot patrons inside the restaurant before he was escorted out by two associates.

A discharged bullet casing was found in the parking lot, confirming reports of a gunshot during the incident.

Detectives located Lobor on July 8 at 42 Kellogg Street.

Due to the presence of small children, officers decided against immediate apprehension.

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

A subsequent search of Lobor’s residence 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 suggesting drug trafficking.

Lobor faces charges including Criminal Threatening with a Dangerous Weapon, Threatening Display of or Possession of a Concealed Weapon, and Violation of Conditions of Release.

Authorities are asking for the public’s assistance 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.
