PORTLAND — A city man was indicted Nov. 15 on several charges involving violent acts in the Old Port almost a year ago.

Moses Okot, now 28, whose address was not disclosed, was indicted on Class A charges of aggravated attempted murder, attempted murder and aggravated assault, and a Class C charge of reckless conduct with a firearm by a Cumberland County grand jury.

An indictment is not a finding of guilt, it is a finding enough evidence exists to prosecute.

Okot allegedly shot one Westbrook resident and stabbed another on Nov. 16, 2015. He was arrested by city police around 2 a.m., about 90 minutes after fleeing the scene near Market and Fore streets.

Okot was also convicted of murder in 2011 in the city death of Serge Mulongo, and sentenced to 10 years with all but three suspended.
