ALBION – A Medina man was arraigned in Orleans County Court today on second-degree assault, criminal possession of a weapon and endangering the welfare of a child.

Michael B. Collier Jr., 23, of East Oak Orchard Street allegedly stabbed Lucas Porter, 16, of Albion 10 times, Assistant District Attorney Susan Howard said. The alleged incident occurred on Oct. 24.

One of the wounds was close to Porter’s heart. He is recovering from the attack, Howard said.

Porter showed up bleeding at the Mark’s Pizzeria in Medina, and then received medical treatment.

Collier has a lengthy criminal history despite being only 23, Howard said in court today. He has two prior felonies, three misdemeanors, two parole revocations and a prior failure to appear in court.

Judge James Punch set bail at $100,000 for Collier, who is in Orleans County Jail.
