Delco man admits box-cutter attack
A Delaware County man pleaded guilty Friday to stabbing a woman with a box cutter.
Jeffrey Waples, 27, of Sharon Hill, was sentenced to four to eight years in prison by Common Pleas Judge Michael F X. Coll.
Shortly before 11 p.m. on Sept. 30, Waples jumped out of bushes along South Fairview Road in Ridley Township and attacked the victim after she told him that she didn't have any cigarettes. The woman suffered a facial injury.
Waples was arrested in Eddystone Borough three days later. Waples told police he planned the robbery to get food.
