Man Charged with Aggravated Assault, Accused of Using Knife to Attack Newark Woman in Montclair, NJ

Newark Aggravated Assault SuspectPolice recently arrested a man accused of assaulting a woman in Montclair, New Jersey.

The incident allegedly occurred in July. According to authorities, the 37-year-old suspect met the 41-year-old victim in Newark, NJ. The woman is reportedly from Newark, while the suspect lives in Belleville, New Jersey.

After meeting in Newark, the suspect and the victim reportedly traveled together to Montclair. At some point, the suspect allegedly used an “unknown cutting weapon” to attack the victim. The assault allegedly occurred at the intersection of Cedar Avenue and High Street in Montclair, NJ.

The victim is said to have sustained “severe lacerations” to the back and neck as a result of the attack.

The Newark Police Department and the Montclair Police Department worked together on a subsequent investigation into the assault. Investigators eventually connected the suspect to the assault. He was placed under arrest in September.

The suspect has been charged with aggravated assault and possession of a weapon for an unlawful purpose.

If the suspect is ultimately convicted on the aggravated assault charges, he would be subject to severe penalties. As set forth by N.J.S.A. 2C:12-1(b), aggravated assault with a deadly weapon such as a knife or gun is a second degree crime. A conviction for second degree aggravated assault could result in a sentence of 5-10 years in New Jersey State Prison.

After being arrested and processed, the suspect was taken to the Essex County Correctional Facility in Newark, NJ. He was being held at the jail in lieu of $300,000 bail.
