MAYVILLE - A Jamestown man has been sentenced to seven years in state prison after stabbing three people in May.
Lucas A. Smyczek, 25, of 233 Barrett Ave., Jamestown, was sentenced Monday in Chautauqua County Court to seven years in state prison and five years post-release supervision for three counts of second-degree assault, according to David Foley, Chautauqua County district attorney.
On May 26, Smyczek was at a large party on Waits Corners Road in Sherman when Chautauqua County Sheriff's deputies received a report of a large fight. Three people were injured - one who had been stabbed and was taken to Hamot Medical Center in Erie, Pa.; a second person who had been stabbed in the chest and also was taken to Hamot; and a third person who was stabbed in the arm and taken to WCA Hospital in Jamestown.
Smyczek left the scene before deputies arrived, but was found in Lakewood by Lakewood-Busti police officers.
