Ocean County officials announced that a juvenile from Newark has been arrested and charged with two counts of Attempted Murder in connection with a stabbing of two males that occurred in Point Pleasant Beach on Monday, September 7.
The juvenile was also charged with Possession of a Weapon - specifically a knife - for an Unlawful Purpose, as well as Unlawful Possession of a Weapon.
The juvenile is being detained in the Ocean County Juvenile Detention Center.
Due to the fact that that the individual charged with these offenses is a juvenile, the law prohibits the release of any additional information.
“Our collaborative investigation revealed that this juvenile was responsible for both stabbings," Ocean County Prosecutor Bradley D. Billhimer said. "We did have two individuals in custody last night, but only one of them is responsible for both stabbings. Both victims are in serious but stable condition this morning.”
