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.
