Camden, N.J. – A woman is facing multiple charges after she rang the doorbell of a home on Waterview Drive in Sicklerville on May 3 and stabbed the homeowner as she opened the door, according to Acting Camden County Prosecutor Jill S. Mayer and Gloucester Township Police Chief David Harkins.
Judith Asber, 52, of Sicklerville, is charged with first-degree Attempted Murder, second-degree Aggravated Assault, second-degree Burglary, third-degree Possession of a Weapon, fourth-degree Unlawful Possession of a Weapon and third-degree Stalking in the May 3 incident.
The homeowner heard the doorbell ring on Sunday afternoon and went to answer it; when she opened the front door, detectives said Asber stabbed her in the abdomen and chased her inside.
Through the investigation, detectives learned it was Abner’s second visit to the house since Friday. Gloucester Twp. Police originally responded to the home on May 1 for a report of a suspicious person. When they arrived, they found Asber, who then pulled a knife on officers. After deploying a taser on her, police arrested Asber.
She was charged with third-degree Possession of a Weapon for an Unlawful Purpose, fourth-degree Possession of a Weapon, and fourth-degree Aggravated Assault by Physical Menace in the May 1 incident and was then released to a crisis center for evaluation.
Asber was transported to the Camden County Correctional Facility on May 3 and is awaiting a detention hearing.
All persons charged with crimes are presumed innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.
