1. Lewiston Police say a woman is dead after a stabbing Sunday morning. The crime took place outside of Rancourt’s Laundromat on Sabattus st. and was reported to police around 11 a.m. on Sunday. 48 year-old Kimberly Dobbie had started a load of laundry in the laundromat then went outside with her two children, ages six and eight. That’s when she was attacked by a man and police say her children witnessed what happened. Other witnesses on the street tackled Dobbie’s attacker and held him until police arrived. Dobbie was taken to Central Maine Medical Center where she died Sunday afternoon.
