SEASIDE PARK, N.J. (AP) – Authorities said a central New Jersey couple were stabbed when an assailant broke into their apartment.

Mark Snitzer, 37, of Seaside Heights was arrested at 8 a.m. Sunday, about 12 hours after the incident at the Seaside Park apartment of Barry and Tabitha Culver.

The couple remained hospitalized Sunday afternoon in stable condition, but further details on their injuries were not disclosed.

Deputy Chief Michael Mohel of the Ocean County Prosecutor’s Office would not say whether anything was stolen or if Snitzer knew either victim. He faced two counts each of attempted murder and attempted robbery and a weapons offense, and was being held in the county jail on $750,000 bail.

It was not immediately known if Snitzer had retained a lawyer.
