Buffalo man sentenced to 10 years for knife attack


BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB)–A Buffalo man will spend ten years in prison after he slashed a woman’s face with a knife last year.

Omar Mapps, 46, pleaded guilty to that assault charge back in January and was sentenced Tuesday.

Prosecutors say Mapps jumped out from a fence and attacked a woman who was walking on Broadway near Lidell Street in May of last year.

The victim says she knew Mapps and she now has a permanent scar. Mapps will also serve five years of probation.
