Briefs for Nov. 30


Stabbing case moved forward; bond set at $100K

— A 20-year-old Steamboat Springs man accused of stabbing three people with a knife earlier this month had his case bound to Routt County District Court during a hearing Wednesday.

Nicholas Joseph Mangione is scheduled to appear at 1 p.m. Jan. 26 for an arraignment hearing, during which he most likely will plead guilty or not guilty to the charges he is facing.

Mangione was arrested Nov. 17 by Steamboat Springs police officers after he allegedly got into an argument with some people at a party and stabbed a 20-year-old man in the chest with a two-inch knife. During another argument the same night, Mangione reportedly cut two other men - one on the right calf and the other on the right hand. All three men were treated and released from the hospital for their injuries.

After learning police were looking for him, Mangione called detectives, who met with and arrested him on suspicion of felony first-degree assault and second-degree criminal trespass.

Mangione is being held at the Routt County Jail on a $100,000 bond.
