Matawan Man Charged in Double Stabbing


A 29-year-old Matawan man has been charged with yesterday's double stabbing.

According to police, officers responded to a 911 call for service at a residence in the 200 block of Matawan Avenue yesterday around 8:31 p.m.

Matawan patrols arrived at the residence where they found two victims, a 58-year-old male and a 55-year-old female, with multiple stab wounds to the body.

Both victims were transported to area hospitals, where they are listed in stable condition at this time, after suffering life-threatening injuries.

Steven M. Brown, 29, of Matawan, has been charged with two counts of first degree attempted murder and two counts of third degree possession of a weapon for an unlawful purpose.

He is being held on $500,000 bail with no option to post ten percent, as set by Monmouth County Superior Court Judge Richard W. English.

Judge English also ordered Brown to have no contact with the victims, nor is he allowed back at the scene as further conditions of bail.
