Law enforcement officials in Middlesex County are continuing to investigate a violent knife attack in New Brunswick Monday morning.
According to New Brunswick Police, at approximately 5:30 am, officers arrested Mr. Rashan McMillan, a 50-year-old male resident of New Brunswick, at the New Brunswick train station (151 Albany Street) following an altercation at that location between Mr. McMillan and another adult male, 31 years of age.
Police say the preliminary investigation suggests that Rashan McMillan and the male victim were known to each other from past interactions.
On this day, they argued over a monetary debt owed to Mr. McMillan.
According to authorities, during the argument, Mr. McMillan stabbed the victim with a knife multiple times when the victim did not repay the debt.
The victim was transported to an area hospital where he was treated for non-life-threatening injuries.
The officers recovered the knife, and Rashan McMillan was charged with Aggravated Assault, Possession of a Weapon for an Unlawful Purpose, and Unlawful Possession of a Weapon.
