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  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.

Luke, relating America to Rome is indeed a very parallel comparison. The fall of Rome was caused by a decaying within, just as our country is decaying from within. The lines between what is right and what is wrong have been blurred so that there is no more black and white, but only gray creating a somewhat anarchic society and ultimately may be its demise. Conformism is unfairly pegged as a dirty word consistently. True, we should always question, but adapting and conforming to your surroundings is how we become a positive influence within a society. Once you have fully tried to immerse yourself into the society you have chosen to become a part of and fully understand it, then you may constructively criticize it and work toward positive change. Coming in kicking and screaming will get you nowhere fast. So in summary, the quote reference has nothing to do with the society in which it speaks of, but more of accepting and conforming to the ways pronounced acceptable by the society you’ve chosen to be a part of. If you don’t like it, no-one is making you stay.

Yes I guess it really would be wrong for someone to get a fair trial in the USA, wow! Way to go Chris! How about the black guy sentenced to life in prison recently in Texas for punching a store clerk???
Leianne June 29, 2012 at 08:12 PM
She has never been in trouble with the law, has no kids, has a job, receives no aid from the government and lives in the suburbs, the stalker in this case comes from the ghetto in Pensauken and went out of her way looking for a fight with someone she thought would NEVER fight back!
Leianne June 29, 2012 at 08:14 PM
Only a bigot would blame Obama for what occurs in TRENTON or CAMDEN or any other God-forsaken predominantly black "tenantry" on the EASTERN SEABOARD!!!
Leianne June 29, 2012 at 08:22 PM
If she cannot prove in court that she felt threatened, cornered, or that she lost it from years of harassment then of course she should get what she deserves and I would support the court's decision but to think that the jury will be made up by people like you is sad, Hopping Mad seems to be someone who knows a lot more about what caused the accident than a lot of those who left their intellectual opinions on here, but if its indeed a family member of course they would defend her even if she is proven wrong for resorting to using a weapon, as anyone else in the world would do! for theirs. What if Ashley Anderson turns out to be a repeat felon, 400 lbs with a face like Sasquatch, would your opinions about an illegal defeding herself change? I DOUBT!!!! Oh say can you see? .... (No, not really!!!)
Leianne June 29, 2012 at 08:29 PM
As for Nancy VanTwistern who is such a coward she did not make it possible for persons to respond on her comment: The illegal can afford bail and a lawyer since she has saved so hard and has a family to support her! She does not need your government's "HELP" Barbados may be less developed in your eyes but our pride and industry and depend on no one attitude is far more than I can say for what exists in your country! But just look at your idiotic thinking, just ship her back and save the expense! If she has committed a crime, should she not pay for it first? Do you think she can be tried in Barbados for something that happened in another country? And everyone keeps talking about sending her back and deportation as if when she goes back to Barbados she is going to an uncivilized country or that it is a form of punishment. News cast americans, not everyone in the world thinks of the USA as the promised land!
Leianne June 29, 2012 at 08:32 PM
because everyone despite status-even prisoners and God forbid- "blacks" have a right to be free from harassment, smh
Mike June 29, 2012 at 09:52 PM
@Leianne, Hopping mad also made it a race issue which I find quite pathetic. If Ms. Holt had an order of protection from Ms. Anderson then Ms Anderson with be and should be charged with a crime. This however in no way gives Ms. Holt a reason to take out a box cutter and repeatedly slash her neck and face 7 times. Everyone is permitted to reasonably defend themselves but according to the Police and news reports Ms. Anderson didn't have a weapon and was even walking away. WAWA has video and there was several witnesses to the incident so im sure Ms. Holts trial will be fair and her clean criminal history will be taken into account.

Nancy, I quote you, "if you have the intelligence to realize that fact!". Why do you refer to Christine's intelligence? Why? It is uncalled for.
Christine T July 03, 2012 at 06:00 PM
Nancy, I made no reference to any illegals. I stated that I am amazed at how racist the people who have commented here are. Just because I don't comment on something does not leave something open for you to assume my opinion. I see you did not answer any of my questions. As you said, "I guess" you are correct. You are guessing! Do you know me? If you know me and feel that I have no intelligence that is your opinion. But if you do not know me, I see no way for you to speak on my intelligence.
Jean Ortiz July 20, 2012 at 06:52 AM
I was harrassed by my husband's mistress (yes...that's right....mistress!) so badly...she even tried to get me fired from my job! She was mad at me because my husband took me out after he left me to be with her and was trying to work things out with me so she got mad and took it out on me! She even gave me a ticket FOR NO REASON which I had to fight in court (and won) because she was a traffic guard at the time and she saw me drive by! Through all the harassment and her taking my husband away from me, I would NEVER in my wildest imagination resort to cutting someone with a box cutter unless they were attacking me with a weapon and I couldn't defend myself any other way. The law is the law. If you don't obey, you deserve to be punished....illegal immigrant or not!

Anyone, no matter their status can go to the police and the police who are not immigration officers are not required to question their status, unfortunately she the accused did not know that, and so lived with the harassment (several physical attacks and confrontations and abusive texts) for 4 years.
Camden Crew February 20, 2013 at 05:43 PM
Wuh ent catch yuh ain't pass yuh Chris... ask a bajan wuh dat mean, if you not too xenophobic to have any "alien" friends.
Camden Crew February 20, 2013 at 05:44 PM
oh? NO COURT CASE? TEXAN lynch mob style?
Camden Crew February 20, 2013 at 05:47 PM
This has been one of the most fair and balanced comments so far from some one not personally attached to the case, thanks Dan. This is a tragic incident and we have to await the outcome of the trial, hopefully none of these xenophobic racist self-righteous hypocrites will be on the jury
Camden Crew February 20, 2013 at 05:50 PM
Its not ok anywhere and no one is more remorseful than her, thats why she never tried to run and cooperated with police. You want to know if its ok here? Ask Rihana or Chris Brown, you heard of them right?
Camden Crew February 20, 2013 at 05:52 PM
HIND SIGHT IS ALWAYS GOOD SIGHT. (I am one of the names you listed above but its been so long that I cannot remember the pass code, no intention to deceive)
Camden Crew February 20, 2013 at 05:55 PM
Oh yea the colombine, Waco Texas, Connecticut, ,... all those crimes were because of illegal immigrants.... -____-
Camden Crew February 20, 2013 at 06:01 PM
True that, Jessica, (Oh my bad, I need to enunciate my thoughts in a politically correct way thats acceptable to these jingoistic self loving crackerjacks....) That is very true Jessica.
Camden Crew February 20, 2013 at 06:14 PM
Thanks anonymous, I looked at that Nancy Twisted-brain person comments and just laughed at her uneducated derriere trying to correct my correct spelling of the word SPELT, I was not a bit SURPRISED because they seem to think that America is the CENTRE of the world (sic) and then try to classify people based on COLOUR, why do you think Obama gets so much licks on this post? Did he do anything but seek a continuance of the extensive and comprehensive immigration policies that have been a tenet of american open arms policy for centuries? Oh to not be the black dog selected to be king for a day on "kick the dog" day! I do not condone violent BEHAVIOUR but I know if the accused was white psychologists would find a million reasons for why she should be acquitted, yea go ahead and accuse me of playing the race card too, I played it because Amercia keeps putting it in the pack of cards.
Camden Crew February 20, 2013 at 06:19 PM
nacy Van Twistern or whatever your name is... are you like 9 years old? Because no normal adult can so consistently follow such an idiotic line of reasoning. So Anonymous naturalized via what process she did not say, was it a paid marriage agreement? Was is through having a lwayer in new york forge a birth certificate? She or He did not say but there you are always ready advising all those others who have illegal status to do the same as she did. I chose to leave your UNCIVILIZED country instead of resorting to breaking the law to pursue the "american" dream. Thank God I woke up from that dream. "Land of the free and blacks...." ...something like that.
Camden Crew February 20, 2013 at 06:20 PM
lawyer (typo) just because I know that's the only thing you will notice and be able to reply to in my comments
Camden Crew February 20, 2013 at 06:24 PM
NOW that is someone who has been to our paradise, are you in anyway related to Johnnie Walker, the "drink"?
Camden Crew February 20, 2013 at 06:32 PM
MLKJ promoted non violence, Malcolm X promoted violence, they both died violently. (shrug) How dare you try to assume that your case is anyway like hers, I appreciate what you are trying to say, no one should take the law into their own hands, lets just wait for the facts and stop using this "news" blog as a source of facts. " and btw, we both agree, if she broke the law she should be punished ... on the preponderance of the evidence not on the whim and fancy of a blood hungry lynch mob
Camden Crew February 20, 2013 at 06:38 PM
You mean leave it up to people with the kind of mental fortitude displayed on this post to decide? ah hah! good one!
Camden Crew February 20, 2013 at 06:40 PM
Yea, the Man, you really are the man, can't even correct someone's use of ENGLISH correctly.(English- originating from the English Language) from the country Great Britain) NB: Americans did not create English, they corrupted it.
Camden Crew February 20, 2013 at 06:43 PM
At the end of the day she understands she did something wrong, no one is trying to gather sympathy for her, just trying to suppress the lynch mob!
Anaverage Man February 21, 2013 at 03:18 AM
@ Ric. I believe my comment about us being immigrants, was meant that if you go far enough back in your family history, you will find your ancestors were at some point immigrants. Yes, we all migrated from Africa, but that's history that ridiculously predates the United States and therefore merits no breath other than that for response. Who cares what Bush did. Do you live by the credo that if one does wrong, it is right for the next. Well.. that's just nonsensical stupid logic.
