A Woolwich man is recovering from a knife wound to the neck, according to a press release from the Sagadahoc County Sheriff’s Office.  The man was stabbed while visiting a relative in West Bath Dec. 26, according to the release.

Clancy Morton, 32, was taken to Maine Medical Center in Portland. He was in stable condition, the release stated.

Morton was visiting a relative at Green Acres Estates on New Meadows Road late at night when two acquaintances of his relative arrived at the apartment.
