KINGSTON ‚?? A man was ordered by a district judge on Thursday to stay out of Pennsylvania except to meet with his lawyer to discuss his on-going aggravated assault case.
Adam Richard Katlic, 24, last known address as Shavertown and currently residing in Maryland, surrendered on charges he stabbed another man several times inside a house on Pringle Street on Sunday.
Katlic, accompanied by attorney Joseph Nocito, was arraigned by District Judge Paul Roberts in Kingston on two counts each of aggravated assault and simple assault, and one count each of reckless endangerment and harassment. He was released on $50,000 unsecured bail.
As part of his bail, Katlic was instructed to stay out of Pennsylvania except to meet with Nocito and not to have any contact with Louis Abod.
According to the criminal complaint:
Abod told police he was hanging out with Katlic and Jesse Clime at Clime‚??s residence drinking beer early Sunday morning. While sitting on a couch, Abod claimed, Katlic picked up a staple gun and shot a staple in his leg.
Abod said he punched Katlic in the leg.
Katlic reached into his pocket and pulled out an unknown item that he used to stab Abod in the face, the complaint says.
Abod said he struggled with Katlic and was stabbed a second time in the face and neck.
Police said Abod suffered two severe stab wounds to his neck and a slash wound to his neck. He was treated at Geisinger Wyoming Valley Medical Center in Plains Township.
A preliminary hearing is scheduled on March 22.
