25-year-old could face 10 years for mid-March Riverton stabbing

A local man is being held on a $25,000 cash bail for allegedly stabbing a man earlier this month during an altercation. Randy Weber is facing a charge of felony Aggravated Assault and Battery as well as a misdemeanor charge of Criminal Entry. The felony is punishable by up to 10 years in prison; the criminal entry crime could get up 6 months in prison and/or a fine of $750. The investigation into the incident began on the evening of March 16 when a man showed up to the Center of Hope in Riverton with a stab wound in the man's torso. The victim identified Weber as the man who stabbed him while they were in an unlocked SUV in a used car parking lot near City Park. Officers went to the location and found four people sleeping inside the vehicle. One of the subjects was sleeping in a pool of blood in the back seat, which was then covering her clothes. During a search of the vehicle, a folding knife was found between the front seat and the center console, and it was known to belong to Weber due to previous contacts with law enforcement. According to the affidavit filed in the case, Weber admitted to police that he stabbed the victim following a verbal argument. He also described where he put the knife after the incident and it coincided to where officers found it. The victim's injury was not life threatening. Weber will enter a plea during an arraignment on April 7. A photo of Weber was not immediately available. #county10 #news
