A Pottstown man is headed to trial on charges stemming from a stabbing incident that occurred at a Perkasie skatepark last year.

Court records show 20-year-old Nikolas Lore, formerly of Perkasie, has a trial scheduled for June 10 at 9 a.m. at the Bucks County Court of Common Pleas. He is charged with one felony count of aggravated assault and misdemeanor counts of possessing an instrument of crime, simple assault, and reckless endangerment, stemming from the alleged incident.

Perkasie Police were dispatched to Grand View Hospital at 4:55 p.m. on Sept. 25, 2023 to meet with the mother of a 15-year-old boy who had been stabbed at the skate park. The mother said she met her son at the pavilion, at which point she noticed blood on his shirt. She was then approached by Lore, who said “he was sorry,” then immediately took her son to the hospital and called police, according to charging documents.

Speaking to investigators, the victim stated Lore retrieved a large knife from his vehicle and started walking towards him, prompting the victim to turn and run away, police said. As the victim was attempting to get away from Lore, he said he felt two “blunt force” hits to his back, then fled to a bathroom where he noticed two approximately three-inch cuts on his upper back, the report states.

The victim received treatment for non-life-threatening injuries at the hospital, police said. Investigators then responded to the skate park, where Lore was located and taken into custody.

Police also said they located the knife when Lore was arrested.

Lore was initially taken to the Bucks County Correctional Facility in lieu of 10% of $150,000 cash bail, however he was released from custody on Dec. 15, 2023, which was the day of his formal arraignment at county court.

He remains free while awaiting trial, court records show.
