MEDINA — A village man released from prison in January after serving time for stabbing a man and nearly killing him is back in jail after he made “racially-motivated” threats to a group of black people, village police said.

Lucas A. Porter, 21, was arrested after an investigation into the July 8 confrontation.

Porter is charged with making a terroristic threat, a class D felony punishable by up to seven years in prison.

He also was charged with second-degree menacing, two counts of endangering the welfare of a child and disorderly conduct.

He was arraigned and committed to Orleans County Jail.

Police Chief Chad Kenward said Porter was involved in a confrontation with a group of black people, including two children, when he made threats that were deemed “racially motivated,” elevating the crime to a D felony.

No other arrests were made.

Porter was released from Wyoming Correctional Facility Jan. 2 after serving two years and six months of a four-year term for assault and burglary convictions.

Porter was on probation for a 2015 burglary in Albion when he stabbed a man during a house party in Ridgeway on Nov. 6, 2016. He was 18 and was a third-team Western New York all-star for Medina High School’s football team that year.

The victim suffered serious injuries and spent 10 days in the hospital.

Porter is on parole until Aug. 1 and on post-release supervision until Jan. 2, 2023.

For Porter, this was his second arrest since being released from prison. He was arrested last month and charged with misdemeanor criminal mischief.
