LOCKPORT – Terrill D. Pettway, 23, of Ely Avenue, Niagara Falls, pleaded guilty Friday to two felonies stemming from a July 4 incident with his ex-girlfriend and her 6-year-old daughter.

Pettway admitted to attempted second-degree assault and attempted third-degree criminal possession of a weapon, and was scheduled for sentencing March 15 by County Judge Sara Sheldon Farkas.

He was accused of threatening his girlfriend with a sawed-off shotgun in their Cudaback Avenue home July 4 and then assaulting the girl. Police said the woman stabbed Pettway in the back twice to stop the attack on the girl; the woman was not charged.
