Police responded to a fight near the boardwalk in Point Pleasant Beach that resulted in the stabbing of two males on Monday, September 7.
Ocean County Prosecutor Bradley D. Billhimer and Point Pleasant Beach Chief of Police Joseph A. Michigan announced today (September 8) that a juvenile from Newark has been arrested and charged with two counts of Attempted Murder.
“Our collaborative investigation revealed that this juvenile was responsible for both stabbings. 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,” Prosecutor Billhimer stated.
The juvenile was also charged with Possession of a Weapon and is being detained in the Ocean County Juvenile Detention Center.
“Everyone involved from the moment this heinous crime occurred really went above and beyond. The Jenkinson’s Lifeguards, Jenkinson’s management and security staff and the Point Pleasant Beach Police Department, collectively, are the reason these two young men are still alive and we have the right person in custody,” Prosecutor Billhimer said in a press statement.
