Rural Lecompton man, 41, pleads no contest to assault charges

July 13, 2012


A 41-year-old rural Lecompton man pleaded no contest to three charges Friday in connection with a June incident in which he was accused of threatening two men with a box-cutter knife, according to the Douglas County District Attorney’s Office.

Eric D. Lipp entered the pleas to two count of aggravated assault and one count of making a criminal threat. Prosecutors initially charged him in connection with a June 28 incident after Lawrence police alleged he threatened the two men outside College Motel, 1703 W. Sixth St., after he saw his girlfriend with them. Lipp and the woman had been involved in an earlier domestic dispute, police said at the time.

Prosecutors said Friday as part of the plea, they dismissed a separate case against Lipp in which he was accused of cutting a man with a box-cutter on May 2 in the 1800 block of West 26th Street.

Lipp’s sentencing will be scheduled a later date.
