UPDATE: New Jersey Corrections Police Officer Charged with Newark Stabbing Incident
A verbal altercation between two women on a Newark South Ward address landed a NJ Corrections Police Officer in jail and charged with aggravated assault on Saturday afternoon.
According to reports, a video obtained by RLS Metro Breaking News showed Ms. Miesha Robinson, 34, of Newark in a heated exchange of words that apparently escalated in the law enforcement officer producing a weapon and attacking a woman just before 2 p.m. according to charges lodged against her.
The short video does not show the women engaged in physical violence.
The victim was transported by private vehicle to Beth Israel Hospital for treatment then released earlier today.
According to police, the bleeding Ms. Robinson made her way to Newark’s 5th precinct and reported that she was attacked in the 400 block of Leslie Street shortly before arriving at the station.
It is not clear how Robinson obtained her minor injuries.
County records show that authorities officially charged Robinson with Aggravated Assault, Unlawful Possession of a Weapon, and Threats of Violence.
She was lodged at the Essex County Jail pending a hearing. Robinson is employed by Northern State Prison according to records.
Police would not release many details regarding the incident.
