A 23-year-old Hazleton man is accused of stabbing another man outside a city bar early Monday morning.
Arrest papers state Jonathan A. Vasquez-Liriano tried entering the King’s Lounge, 511 W. Broad St., with a knife that night but a security worker removed it from him as he entered the business.
When the bar was closing for the night, Vasquez-Liriano asked for the weapon back and a security worker gave it to him. Almost immediately after, court papers state, the security worker saw police arrest Vasquez-Liriano outside the business.

Lancaster city police said an officer shot and killed a homeless man who lunged at an officer Monday morning with a knife after they questioned him about urinating and exposing himself in public.
Police said they attempted to stun the man, who has not been identified, with a Taser but the charge had no effect on him. After the man refused to drop his knife, an officer fired three shots at him and struck him once.
