Man convicted of slashing victim across the face with a knife

BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) – A man once convicted of slashing a man across the face with a razor blade during a robbery has been convicted of a second slashing.

Jonathan Archibald, 41, was convicted of second degree assault on Tuesday after a week-long jury trial. According to the Erie County District Attorney’s Office, last May, Archibald pursued a man whom he had gotten into an argument with, and inside a store at Harmonia and Walden in Buffalo, slashed the victim across the face with a knife. When the man attempted to defend himself, Archibald repeatedly stabbed him in the arm and chest.

In 2010, also on Harmonia Street, Archibald slashed a man across the face with a razor blade and stole his cell phone. He has also been convicted of drug charges in 1997, 2005, and 2010.

If found to be a persistent felony offender, Archibald could be sentenced to life in prison in June.
