Authorities Investigating Stabbing, Robbery

stabbing[UPDATED SUNDAY 12:25 PM] A person was stabbed this evening in an apparent robbery, TLS has learned.

LCSW Coordinators tell TLS they received the initial call shortly after 9 PM from a woman who said a bloodied man walked up to her car window while she sat in her car off New Hampshire Avenue, but she was unsure of what was going on. The dispatcher immediately told the woman to phone Police.

“Upon arrival, they learned that two males approached a vehicle that was occupied by a male and female,” says Detective Sergeant Greg Staffordsmith. “The suspects, described as one black male and one Hispanic male, reportedly robbed them of their cell phones and money before stabbing the male victim serval times.”

The suspects then fled on foot.

The victim, a Hispanic male, was transported to JSMUC in serious, but stable condition.

stabbing 2A pool of blood could be seen in middle of the road, which was shut down as authorities combed the area for clues.

Frum neighbors who learned of the stabbing and robbery, were shocked.

K9 and CIU were called in to investigate, but were unsuccessful in tracking the suspects.

Anyone with information is asked to call Detective Sergeant Rob Humeny at 732-363-0200. [TLS]

  • Geshmakalypse says:

    Good thing the assailant didn’t have gun, the victim probably would have been shot dead.

  • Yid says:

    It’s a real shame the victim didn’t have a gun; the world would have been rid of the assailant.

  • Neighbor's relative says:

    This happened in the New Hampshire/Albert area. The block is pitch dark at night because of burnt out street lights. JCP&L, get out there and get those lights back on so the streets can become safe again.

  • ANON says:

    Arm up america! Its the only solution right now. If every thug would even have a doubt that his victim may have a weapon he would never start up with him. As we know these thieves are mostly cowards.

  • Bonnie says:

    This is really getting to be way to much…COMMON SENSE IS TO CALL 911. The POLICE…The LCSW is here to assist the police, they do a great job, but, they are NOT police officers. By calling them, you not only wasted time by explaining the whole story and them telling you to call the police, but you also put them at risk. Someone is going to get badly hurt of even killed one day. Is that what it’s going to take to use COMMON SENSE??? 911 for an EMERGENCY!!!!!

  • guy says:

    yid what a dum comment thank god he didnt have a gun

  • Confused? says:

    In case of emergency dial 911 correct? Why do people call LCSW

  • Traffic light says:

    I always call police first
    Not even a question !!

  • Teaneck says:

    well gey rid of the pharmaceutical industry in the naibroughhood and cowards wouldn’t be desperate for a few $ in some purse the cops know about the pharmaceutical business bbecause when you call them you just say the block and they know what house all they do is drive the new chargers

  • huh?? says:

    #17 Teaneck ….HUH?????

  • Chaim B says:

    My thoughts are prayers are with the victim. May G-d grant him a speedy and full recovery

  • 123 says:

    may he have a speedy recovery

  • Anon says:

    What happened to calling police?!! Sounds like people are afraid of police because they are not from the community? Not picking on anyone but it just seems like they call LCSW first for everything.

  • Brains says:

    This is exactly the reason why we can’t become slumlords and rent to trash in Lakewood. They only trash our town and keep us safe.

  • Anon says:

    How do you trash something and keep it safe at the same time?

  • Ms. Candy Kane says:

    There are always these boyish comments when these things happen that if only the victim had a gun. Pulling a gun out and shooting someone is not as simple as the video games these commentators play

  • Albert resident says:

    Why the few lights that lakewood have are very dim and could barely see….. We pay taxes for lights…..

  • Alan says:

    My guess is, it was dark, the woman couldn’t see the blood, the victim was acting erratic, and the woman suspected he was drugged or drunk, and didn’t realize a crime had taken place to call the police.

  • Pay taxes says:

    I pay plenty of taxes that we deserve to have very lit street lights unlike what we have!

  • Towers Resident says:

    This is a quiet area I think High Point thugs are coming this way. Something should be done with that place. Stay aware!

  • Mr. Conservative says:

    “LCSW Coordinators tell TLS they received the initial call shortly after 9 PM from a woman who said a bloodied man walked up to her car window”
    – you see someone acting erratic.
    – you see blood
    – you are scared and want help
    = so you called in neighborhood watch?????

    when will the LCSW coordinators and the police chief address this debacle? someone is going to get killed one day awaiting help, because the fire/police/emt’s are not called RIGHT AWAY, FIRST THING!!!
