SUSPECT IN JULY 7th STABBING
After a 3½ month investigation, today at 10:30am a 16-year-old Colts Neck Township boy was arrested and charged in connection with the July 7, 2013 stabbing of a township woman at her Bray Street home.
Detective Zarrillo of the Colts Neck Police Department and Investigators from the Monmouth County Prosecutor’s Office arrested the juvenile today, charging him with first degree Attempted Murder, third degree Possession of a Weapon for an Unlawful Purpose, fourth degree Unlawful Possession of a Weapon and first degree Carjacking.
Colts Neck Police received a 911 call around 12:30am on July 7, 2013 from a Colts Neck woman indicating she was stabbed by an unknown assailant. The Colts Neck Police Department and Colts Neck First Aid responded to her residence where they discovered she had been stabbed several times. The victim was taken to a nearby hospital in critical condition. She remained in the hospital for several days where she was treated for her injuries and eventually discharged.
The victim heard some noise coming from the outside of her house and when she went to open her door to investigate, the assailant pushed his way into her house and stabbed her several times. The juvenile then took the keys to her car and fled the scene in her vehicle parked in her driveway. The vehicle was recovered in Aberdeen later that same morning.
We are very proud of our Police Department and a great investigative job, after 3½ months to be able to bring closure of this horrific incident within this community.
