NANTICOKE – City police said Monday they are searching for George Richards, 26, of Nanticoke, for his alleged role in a stabbing in June.


An arrest warrant was issued for Richards, charging him with aggravated assault, simple assault and harassment.


Police allege Richards assaulted Floyd Bernard on East Main Street on June 30. Bernard was beaten with a wooden object and stabbed, police said.


Richard Shaw, 28, of Wilkes-Barre, was arrested July 18 for his alleged role. Shaw was charged with aggravated assault, harassment and two counts of simple assault. He was freed after posting $75,000 bail on July 26, according to court records.


Anyone with information about the whereabouts of Richards is asked to call Nanticoke police at 735-2200 or 911.


NANTICOKE – City police said Monday they are searching for a woman who cashed a check that was illegally reproduced using a magisterial district court's check.


Police said the $969 check was cashed at United Check Cashing in Edwardsville on June 27. The check was a reproduction of what a court check issued by District Judge Donald Whittaker would issue to people owed restitution.


The bogus check was made payable to Tamina J. Williams of 260 Rutter Ave., Kingston. An investigation determined the woman who cashed the check was not Williams and the Rutter Avenue address does not exist.


Anyone with information about the woman's identity is asked to call Nanticoke police at 735-2200 ext. 206.


The U.S. Secret Service in Scranton is assisting in the investigation.
