Passaic Woman Stabs Security Guard in Hasbrouck Heights

Hasbrouck Heights

A 28-year-old Passaic woma, on her first day at work, stabbed the company's 60-year-old security guard after an altercation Tuesday afternoon.

Police responded to Fashion Logistics on Route 46 West at about 3 p.m. for a report of a stabbing.

Upon arrival, police found the unidentified security guard suffering non- life threatening injuries. The victim was transported to Hackensack University Medical Center for treatment.

Further investigation revealed, that the alleged attacker, 28-year-old Christina N. Gomes, who had been hired earlier that day, decided she didn’t want to work anymore. As she went to exit the building, Gomes walked into a restricted area of the building, where the building security told Gomes to move. She allegedly got upset and stabbed the guard with a razor-like sheetrock knife before fleeing.

Gomes was arrested shortly after on Route 17, according to police.

She was charged with aggravated assault and a weapons charge. She was being held in the Bergen County jail on $50,000 bail.
