LANCASTER, Pa. (WHTM) – A Lititz teenager is awaiting trial as an adult for stabbing a 15-year-old girl at a Manheim Township park.
Cameron Andrews, 16, waived a preliminary hearing Monday and was ordered to trial on charges of attempted homicide and aggravated assault, according to the Lancaster County District Attorney’s Office.
The girl told police she was walking with Andrews on a wooded foot path when he stabbed her several times September 1. The incident occurred in Manheim Township Community Park in Neffsville.
The girl, a Manheim Township High School student, sustained multiple stab wounds to her back and sides, including one that narrowly missed puncturing vital organs, police said. Authorities said she is recovering from her injuries.
By waiving his hearing, Andrews does not admit guilt, but he agrees there is enough evidence to support the charges.
He remains in Lancaster County Prison without bail.
