The incident reportedly occurred on September 15. According to law enforcement, the 26-year-old suspect was sitting in his vehicle on the Morris Turnpike. The suspect reportedly revved his engine over and over again, creating a noise disturbance.
A 55-year-old man, also a Randolph NJ resident, walked up to the suspect’s car and asked the suspect to move his motor vehicle. At that point, the suspect allegedly grabbed a knife and stabbed the victim.
The victim reportedly sustained knife wounds as a result of being cut “several times.”
The victim was rushed to Morristown Medical Center, where he received medical treatment for his injuries. He was released from the hospital sometime later.
Meanwhile, the suspect allegedly drove off and fled the scene of the alleged stabbing. Randolph police officers later located the suspect’s vehicle and placed the suspect under arrest.
If the suspect is convicted on the most serious aggravated assault charges, he faces severe penalties. As set forth by N.J.S.A. 2C:12-1(b), aggravated assault with a deadly weapon such as a handgun or a knife is a second degree felony. A conviction for second degree aggravated assault could lead to a sentence of 5-10 years in NJ State Prison.
