SOUTHERN NJ -- A woman stabbed this morning at Wawa is going to be OK after another woman stabbed her in the head, neck and face following a physical altercation, according to local police.
Cinnaminson, N.J. Police were called to the Church Road Wawa around 7 a.m. today after two females, who are acquaintances, were fighting inside the store. Sgt. William Obuchowski said a male friend of both women broke up the fight. As the victim walked outside toward her car, the suspect went up behind her with a box cutter.
"She stabbed or sliced the girl three times in the back of the head and neck, went in the front and cut her face in a couple of places," said Obuchowski.
The stabbing occurred in the row of parking spots along Church Road. Cones and police tape covered the spot, also blocking a nearby black SUV. The SUV appeared to have stains on it, but it is unknown who owns it.
The alleged stabber then fled across Church Road to the wooded area next to TD Bank and disposed of the weapon. When the suspect walked back out of the woods, police arrested her and took her into custody. Police have not released her identity.
The victim was transported to Cooper University Hospital in Camden. Obuchowski said police were informed she is going to recover.
"The wounds weren't as bad as they looked," he said.
It is unknown what started the altercation, Obuchowski said, but it appears the two women knew each other.
Wawa's corporate office, where local employees referred Patch to for comment, did not immediately return phone messages.
