Jefferson NJ police are looking for a person of interest in stabbings at a gentlemen’s club in Jefferson, New Jersey.
Police officers responded to a report of a large fight at Club 15 Gentlemen’s Club on Route 15 South. When the officers arrived at the scene, the fight had subsided.
Later, police received a report of a male who was taken to St. Clare’s-Dover hospital for treatment for serious stab wounds. The 22-year-old Morristown NJ man said that he had suffered the injuries during a fight.
According to police, a 21-year-old man and a 37-year-old man were also treated at Morristown Medical Center for moderate “knife-inflicted” injuries.
Jefferson police looked at video surveillance footage of the fight and identified a person of interest in the case. According to the Morris County CrimeStoppers website, police are currently searching for the man.
In New Jersey, aggravated assault is addressed by N.J.S.A. 2C:12-1(b). In this case, if a person is arrested for the stabbing, he would likely face second degree aggravated assault charges because the attack involved a deadly weapon. Second degree aggravated assault is punishable by a term of incarceration of up to 10 years in NJ State Prison.
CrimeStoppers is offering a $1,000 reward for information about the person of interest. Anyone who wishes to call can remain anonymous.
