Teenagers stabbed in New Brunswick

 

 

††††††††† Middlesex County Prosecutor Bruce J. Kaplan and New Brunswick Police Director Peter Mangarella announced that police are actively investigating the stabbing of two teenagers, one of whom died September 25, 2010, apparently as a result of his injuries.

 

The 14-year-old New Brunswick male was pronounced dead at 2:24 p.m. at Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital in New Brunswick. His companion, a 17-year-old male, was treated and released today. The companion previously had been listed in critical but stable condition. Their names are being withheld at this time.

 

The investigation began when police were dispatched to the corner of Jersey Avenue and Delavan Street in New Brunswick after receiving a 911 call at 3:52 a.m. on September 25, 2010.

 

Police arrived to find the teenagers had been stabbed. They were taken to the city hospital.

 

The investigation by Detective Mark Pappas of the New Brunswick Police Department and Investigator Michael Daniewicz of the Middlesex County Prosecutorís Office determined that the victims were approached by more than one individual and the stabbings occurred as a result of a dispute.

 

No descriptions of the assailants are available.

 

The results of an autopsy performed by the Middlesex County Medical Examinerís Office were not immediately available. The 14-year-old male was a freshman at New Brunswick High School.

 

The investigation is continuing. Anyone with information is asked to call Detective Mark Pappas of the New Brunswick Police Department at (732) 745-5217, or Investigator Michael Daniewicz of the Middlesex County Prosecutorís Office at (732) 745-4018.
