A potato chip deliveryman was arrested after he allegedly stabbed his co-worker several times.
The victim, a 23-year-old man who works for Herr’s Snacks, told police he was driving up to his company’s headquarters on the 7500 block of Brewster Avenue in Philadelphia Friday around 1:45 p.m. with 21-year-old Tamaron Jones. Jones worked for a temporary agency and was assigned to Herr’s about two weeks ago, officials said.
As the two were driving, Jones allegedly pulled out a kitchen knife and stabbed the man multiple times. The victim was eventually able to escape from the Herr’s truck, police said.
