Last month a
ex-con attacked his girlfriend after she refused to talk with him about their relationship. She had earlier discussed leaving him and in a fit of anger, he attacked her with a coffee pot then began slashing her with a box cutter.
Police were called to the scene after the woman escaped to a nearby apartment with her four-year-old daughter, who unfortunately had to witness the attack. Forty-seven year old Craig Vanderbeck was arrested a short time later that same afternoon. The girlfriend survived the attack after surgery and will recover. Vanderbeck had previously served two years in prison in 2002 for another
aggravated assault conviction.
