LOCKPORT – A John Street man already serving a year in jail on a burglary charge received a sentence of six more months and five years probation on a stabbing charge.

Johnny Q. Russell, 18, pleaded guilty to second-degree assault on Aug. 15 for stabbing 17-year-old Dartanian Hill in the leg and under the arm June 10 on Elmwood Avenue in Lockport.

According to police, Hill had intervened after Russell stole an iPod from another youth and a fight broke out.

Russell was jailed on June 12 for attempted third-degree burglary in connection with a Sept. 23 theft of a PlayStation game system from a home on Cleveland Place in Lockport.

State Supreme Court Justice Richard C. Kloch Sr., who imposed the additional jail time, said that while Russell is on probation he must submit to random substance abuse testing, adhere to a curfew and participate in anger management counseling.
