Police Still Searching for Man Accused of Repeatedly Stabbing Ex-Girlfriend Outside Bucks Co. Mall

A man who police say brutally attacked his ex-girlfriend outside a Bucks County mall earlier this month, nearly stabbing her to death, is still on the run -- and police are asking for the public's help to track him down.

Middletown Township Police said that Craig Boston's ex-girlfriend had a protection-from-abuse order against him on Sept. 6 when he attacked her just before 2:30 p.m. outside the Macy's store at Oxford Valley Mall, stabbing her repeatedly in the arm, chest and neck. Bystanders intervened, but Boston fled and escaped before police arrived. He's been on the run since the attempted murder, authorities said.

Police said that Boston, who is 28, has several possible addresses including at a number of locations in Philadelphia. He may frequent the Sunday Breakfast Rescue Mission, a homeless shelter on 13th Street just north of Vine in downtown Philadelphia, police said.
