      LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) -- An April sentencing has been scheduled for a 39-year-old Lincoln man who police say stabbed a stranger in the back.

      Online court records say Jon Tucker made an agreement with prosecutors and on Wednesday pleaded no contest to attempted second-degree assault. Prosecutors had lowered the charge in exchange for Tucker's plea.

      Police say Tucker walked up to a man who was raking leaves on Nov. 23 and stabbed him. The man was treated at a hospital and released.

      Sentencing is scheduled for April 15.
