A Penndel Borough man is sitting in Bucks County Prison awaiting trial for an incident in which he allegedly used a knife to trap his ex-girlfriend. The charges against Eduardo Vasquez, 60, include aggravated assault, terroristic threats, and false imprisonment.
Police responded to a call of domestic violence in early November in the Mill Creek apartments. They arrived at the scene on the evening of November to find the victim standing in the parking lot, holding a bloody knife.
She claimed the weapon was one of two knives Vasquez, her ex-boyfriend, wielded to trap her. According to the victim, Vasquez had trouble separating himself from the situation and wanted to get back together.
In an attempt to escape, Vasquez’s ex-girlfriend tried to distract him and burst towards the door. Vasquez then attacked her and during the struggle Vasquez sustained a wound to his hand.
The victim was able to call 911. While she was on the phone, she claims Vasquez tried to kill himself via hanging, but disappeared before police showed up.
Vasquez ended up at St. Mary’s Medical center for treatment and was turned over to the Penndel Police department to be charged and processed. He waived the charges in court last week.
